Tragedy hit musician Kid Rock hard at his Tennessee estate.
Kid Rock, real name Robert Ritchie, found his assistant Michael Sacha, 30, lying alongside his driveway Monday morning.
Sacha was unresponsive and the fire department determined he was dead before they arrived on the scene, The Tennessean reported.
Sacha was using an ATV to ferry Rock’s guests to the street where they were meeting an Uber around midnight Monday morning. He apparently lost control of the vehicle on his way back to the estate, and his death was ruled an accident by Nashville police.

Rock said in a statement on his website that he is “beyond devastated.”
“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,” he said. “I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I cannot imagine how they must feel.”
Rock said he will remain in Tennessee until he can get “[Sacha] home to his family.”
“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,” Ritchie said. “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.”
