Just before 3 am on Saturday morning, country star Travis Tritt was involved in a fatal car accident.
According to TMZ, the singer was on his tour bus in South Carolina when a Jeep reportedly was going the wrong way down the highway. The Jeep hit a pickup, both the driver of the Jeep and the pickup died.
Tritt’s tour bus was sideswiped but no one on the bus was injured.
“I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m literally shaken by what I witnessed. God bless those who died and their families. Two human beings died tonight for no reason other than stupidity. I’m saddened beyond belief!” Tritt said of the accident.
Police have not released information as to why the Jeep was going the wrong way, but Tritt said, “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.”
He added one final plea to those getting behind the wheel while drunk. “I beg everyone to please, please, please drive sober. Know when to admit that you are too impaired to drive.”
