Kid Rock’s assistant Mike Sacha has died after an ATV accident in Nashville.
According to the Nashville Fire Department, they found Sacha on Monday morning (April 25) on in the Whites Creek neighborhood, just about 10 miles north of downtown Nashville. Sacha was reportedly transporting guests of Kid Rock’s from his 160-acre estate to an Uber waiting in the driveway, and on his return to the house, he lost control of the ATV and crashed.
Sacha, 30, grew up in Farmington Hills, Michigan, close to the part of suburban Detroit where Kid Rock has a home.
A statement on Kid Rock’s website shares his condolences and sets the facts straight about the accident.
“I am beyond devastated to report that my personal assistant Mike Sacha passed away today in an ATV accident here in Nashville. 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.
“I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I cannot imagine how they must feel. Myself, the band, our family, friends and co-workers are devastated over this loss. We were supposed to be back in Michigan today, but I am going to stay here with Mike until I can bring him 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. 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.”
