Country star Travis Tritt was involved in a fatal car crash early Saturday morning where two people died after a car traveling the wrong way on a South Carolina highway collided with another vehicle.
Tritt took to social media after being “shaken up” by the deadly crash that took place in front of his tour bus on Veterans Highway in Myrtle beach.
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. pic.twitter.com/zcfRK7XxFc

He said that while everyone inside the bus was not harmed, their vehicle sustained minor damage as the driver attempted to avoid the collision directly in front of them.
Horry County Fire and Rescue said that two unidentified people died during a multi-vehicle crash Highway 22 at around 3:30 a.m. A third person sustained only minor injuries.
