(CONWAY, S.C.) – An Ellettsville woman and another person died as a result of a multi-vehicle crash in South Carolina that sideswiped country music star Travis Tritt’s tour bus.
The crash occurred early Saturday on Highway 22 in Horry County.
South Carolina Highway Patrol Cpl. Sonny Collins said a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction crashed into a pickup truck head-on. The victims were identified as 61-year-old Tonda Cross of Ellettsville, Indiana, and 25-year-old Charles “Cody” Wade of Horry County.
One person suffered minor injuries.
Tritt tweeted that his tour bus sustained minor damage as it swerved to try to avoid the collision. Tritt was leaving Myrtle Beach after playing a concert there Friday night. No one on the tour bus was injured.
He said he was “shaken” by what he saw and “saddened beyond belief.”
