Michael Sacha, Kid Rock's Personal Assistant, Fatally Injured in ATV Crash


April 25, 2016


Investigation by North Precinct detectives shows that an ATV accident is responsible for the overnight death of Michael Sacha, 30, on private property at 3631 Knight Drive owned by Robert Ritchie, known professionally as musician Kid Rock.  Sacha worked for Ritchie as a personal assistant.
Officers were called to the scene at 11:36 a.m. and found that Sacha was deceased on the embankment of the property’s long driveway.  Detectives learned that Sacha drove two individuals who had attended a cookout down the driveway to meet with an Uber driver at midnight.  While riding the ATV back toward the residence, Sacha apparently lost control and crashed.  Ritchie began looking for Sacha late this morning when he couldn’t find him at the residence.  Ritchie and a friend discovered Sacha on the embankment and immediately telephoned for help.
