Tennessee Highway Patrol officials said the man had been walking from the site of the Bonnaroo music festival, apparently coming from the direction of Manchester Tenn. The Tennessean reported that he apparently hopped a chain-link fence before near mile marker 113 before walking onto the highway.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials on Friday night had not yet identified the man or found anyone he may have been traveling with.
The THP said the accident was not the fault of the bus driver.
