Fatal Accident at Bonnaroo Music Festival

Authorities say 21-year-old Joshua Overhall of Hamilton, Ohio died when he was hit by a tour bus carrying Bluegrass musician Ricky Skaggs after a performance at the festival Friday night.

Hamilton was hit by the bus as it traveled south on Interstate 24, about a mile from the exit for the Bonnaroo festival.

A Tennessee safety spokeswoman says the victim walked into traffic and the bus driver, who was traveling about 55 miles per hour, was not at fault and will not face any charges.

The annual Bonnaroo festival is going on this weekend in Manchester, Tenneessee.
