“Sorry if I’ve been MIA for a couple days to those asking, figured this was easier to write here. My friends and I were hit by a drunk driver on the lake a couple days ago after the fireworks,” Murray wrote on Tuesday. “One of my buds got hurt bad but thankfully will recovery after many surgeries. Others were shaken up obviously. I’m fine physically for most part.”

“Anyways, hope y’all had a great fourth [of July] and be safe out there. Just got my phone back, so sorry for no responses for a couple days,” he concluded. “Say a couple prayers for my bud when you get a chance.’
