Michael Sacha, singer Kid Rock’s assistant, is believed to have died around midnight Monday. He apparently lost control of the ATV he was using to ferry guests to a waiting vehicle and crashed.
“He was a member of our family and one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with,” Kid Rock said. “I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I cannot imagine how they must feel. We’ve already been contacted by the press asking if it was me who was in the accident, so I want to stop any rumors before they spread. I’m asking everyone to please respect our and his family’s privacy in this difficult time. RIP Mike. We will never forget you, my friend.”
Kid Rock supposedly plans to remain in Nashville until Michael’s body can be delivered to his family.
