MYRTLE BEACH, SC — Country music star Travis Tritt was "really shaken" after his tour bus was involved in a head-on fatal crash on Highway 22 early Saturday morning, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Tritt and his crew were leaving Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, when the accident happened. He said his tour bus was sideswiped and sustained minor damage “as we tried to avoid the crash site in front of us.”
“Thank God we are all okay,” he wrote. “I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God bless those who died.”
Tritt, a Georgia native who lives in Hiram, said he was told the accident was caused by a wrong-way driver who “was obviously driving drunk or impaired.”
