Last month, Michael Sacha, a 30-year-old personal assistant to Kid Rock was killed in a tragic ATV accident.
Now, TMZ is reporting that a toxicology report indicates that Sacha was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
The site describes Sacha as “extremely drunk” and reports that he was found to have a BAC of .21, nearly three times the legal driving limit.
The medical examiner’s report also indicates that Sacha likely died instantly, as his brain was severed from his spinal cord on impact.
Sacha was transporting guests to and from a cookout on Rock’s large estate at the time of the accident.
He was reportedly returning from dropping a group of attendees off to catch an Uber when he veered off the path.
Rock was among those who discovered the body, and the singer’s distress is apparent in his 911 call:
The 45-year-old rock star issued the following statement shortly after Sacha’s death:
“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’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.
Sources say Sacha and Rock became close friends during their years of working together, and the singer is reportedly still in mourning.
