MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WTVF) — Country music star Travis Tritt's tour bus was involved in a fatal crash that killed two people early Saturday morning.

Sharing information on the crash on social media, Tritt said there was a driver who was driving on the wrong side of the road as he was leaving Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

"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."

Tritt also said, "I beg everyone to please, please, please drive sober. Know when to admit that you are too impaired to drive."
