Travis Tritt Uninjured After Tour Bus Sideswiped in Auto Accident That Killed 2 People

Travis Tritt was aboard his tour bus on May 18 when it was sideswiped during an auto accident that killed two people on Veterans Highway in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

After Travis performed a Friday evening (May 17) show in North Myrtle Beach, his bus was slightly damaged as it tried to avoid a crash caused by a driver going the wrong way. Two people died during the multi-vehicle crash at 3:30 a.m., while a third person sustained minor injuries.

According to police reports, a Jeep traveling in the wrong direction crashed into a Chevrolet truck head-on, killing the Jeep’s driver, Charles “Cody” Wade, 25, and a passenger in the truck, Tonda Cross, 61.

No one on Travis’ bus reported any injuries.

Travis posted a series of tweets moments after the accident, noting that “God was obviously watching over us tonight” and that he was “incredibly sad for those who lost their lives tonight.”
