Sadly, other people didn’t survive the crash.
Early Saturday (May 18) morning, following a show in Myrtle Beach, Travis Tritt’s bus was involved in a lethal car crash. He took to Twitter to address what had happened, noting that his vehicle had been sideswiped in the accident. “We were just involved in a fatal accident with a driver going the wrong way on Veteran’s Highway as we were leaving Myrtle Beach. Thank God we are all okay. I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God bless those who died. We sustained minor damage as we tried to avoid the crash site in front of us. Bus damage can be fixed, but lives cannot be replaced. I’m so incredibly sad for those who lost their lives tonight.”
“I’m told that two people were killed in tonight’s accident as the result of someone who was obviously driving drunk or impaired. Just a sober reminder to everyone to never drive if you’ve been drinking or impaired in any way. Uber or Lyft is just a phone call away.”
“I beg everyone to please, please, please drive sober. Know when to admit that you are too impaired to drive. We only were sideswiped in tonight’s accident. It could’ve been so much worse. God was obviously watching over us tonight. I praise God for keeping us safe!”
