Breaking: Country Star Travis Tritt's Tour Bus Involved in Fatal Accident

A very scary situation, with loss of life. This didn't have to happen. PLEASE don't drink and drive. Story reported by iHeartRadio below:

Two people were killed and one other person injured after a car driving the wrong way on a South Carolina highway side-swiped the tour bus for country music legend Travis Tritt.

According to a post byTritt on Facebook, the tour bus was leaving the area after finishing up a gig in Myrtle Beach when the country legend's tour bus was side-swiped by a drunk driver going the wrong way on the highway. Two people were killed, and one other person was injured in the accident.

"I feel so bad for those who died needlessly," Tritt wrote in a message posted to his Facebook Saturday morning. "I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God bless those who died. I’m told that two people were killed in the accident as the 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," the country star added.

Last evening after our gig in Myrtle Beach, we were involved (our bus was sideswiped) in a fatal accident with a driver going the wrong way on Veteran’s Highway as we were leaving the area.

Thank God we are all okay. I feel so bad for those who died needlessly. I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God bless those who died. I’m told that two people were killed in the accident as the 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 sustained only 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.🙏🏻~ T

"I beg everyone to please, please, please drive sober. Know when to admit that you are too impaired to drive," the country star pleaded.

The musician shared a photo of the scene and extent of the damage to his Twitter page.
