Trace Adkins' Tour Bus Involved in Fatal Crash

2/13/2010 2:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Trace AdkinsA pickup truck crashed into one of Trace Adkins' tour buses this morning, killing two people in the pickup truck ... this according to Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana.

Adkins was not on board the bus at the time.

None of Adkins' band members were thought to have suffered serious injuries, but Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator told KTBS he believed both men in the pickup were killed on impact. The pickup truck crossed the center line and crashed into the tour bus, Prator told the station.

Sgt. Michael Gray tells us they believe the pickup was coming from a casino.

I know the young man that died in this accident, he was a close friend of mine and others. I find it very rude of you to assume that they were drinking and driving, and are hicks. Justin was a good guy just trying to get things right in his life. I will miss him and defend him till the end. RIP Justin and Jeff Missed by many Loved by all.

A TRACE ADKINS FAN IN TX.    

MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE FAMILY OF THE TWO YOUNG MEN THAT DIED IN THIS ACCIDENT. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH TRACE ADKINS AND HIS BAND MEMBERS. I HOPE THAT THEY ALL HAVE A SPEEDY RECOVERY MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY.

I THINK IT IS SAD THAT PEOPLE LIKE #3 AND #15 MAKE JUDGMENTS ABOUT THINGS THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME, IF YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING NICE SAY NOTHING AT ALL. PLEASE DON'T JUDGE!!!!!

To those of you that find the joy of calling these boys hicks, there is one thing that one of you said that is true, they do have families, the passenger Jeffrey, has a wife and 3 babies at home. Justin the driver was a young kid with the rest of his life ahead of him, he was not drunk and no drinking was the cause, so if you do not know the details maybe you should think about thier families before you make rude comments about the people who saddly lost their lives yesterday, and the babies that lost their daddy. Show some respect people for Gods sake.

Excuse me but this whole thing really upsets me cause everyone is worried about Trace Adkins Bus when the two HICKS as #3 said DIED!!!! Their lives r more valuable than some country singers tour bus. These men were wonderful people and their family and friends are devastated. Before u comment on something like this u need to think about who reads it! What if it was ur friend of 32 years or son or husband, how would u feel! We r hucks down here and proud of it and obviously a hell of a lot better people than some commenting! Another thing he wasn't drunk! We will truly miss our friends!

What I find ironic is that the person who made the comment about "hicks" misspelled the word. It's "hicks" as in the plural form of "hick" not "hick's," which is possessive. If you are going to make disparaging remarks regarding someone's upbringing, at least use correct grammar and spelling so you don't look like more of a buffoon.

#15 you should be banned from computer use! You don't even remember the "story" but you are comparing Trace to Chris Brown?

I know Trace personally and believe me he is suffering right now. The loss of anyone touches his heart. Knowing his band-family has been injured is also causing Trace pain. He is a good man, with a kind heart. Trace never has pretended to be perfect, but he is NOT a woman beater!

Why does people have to be so cruel??
This was a tragic accident and two people was killed and some of the band memebers was hurt.
If this happened to one of your family members you wouldn't want anybody to say anything so cruel about them.
Now would you????
Nobody knows if the two that was killed was drunk or not so why say it if you don't know,you wasn't there and you don't know if they was or not.....
Our thoughts and Prayers are with Trace and his band members and their family and the two people that was killed and their families.

#23 Kari,it isn`t about "trace adkins bus" but what if some of the members on the bus had died too then what would you say? nobody says they are better than anybody else but people are worried about them too because they too have families back home just like the two men that lost their lives have,so it`s not all about "trace adkins bus" it`s about every single person involved in the accident but you have to understand though the only reason it is getting so much media attention is because it involved a famous person`s tour bus,if it wasn`t for the "famous person involved" nobody would even know about the accident except the local newspaper and maybe the local tv stations.

I believe this is a tragedy and people should be very careful how they talk on these blogs. Family and friends of a person that has deceased are dealing with the horrible fact that they will never see their loved ones again. I lost my brother two years ago and I still cry just about every day that goes by. It doesn't matter if they are famous or not they have family and friends that love them and will miss them terribly. My prayers and thoughts are with the family of the men who lost their lives in this wreck and with Trace and his band members that they heal fast.

I AGREE DRINKING AND DRIVING DON'T MIX AND UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS A SAD REMINDER OF THAT ALONG WITH CELL PHONES AND TEXTING WHILE DRIVING. YES TRACE IS A CLASS ACT AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT PROVOKED HIS ANGER IN THE PAST. I HAVE HEARD ON NATIONAL TV HE HARBORS NO ILL WILL TOWARD HIS EX THAT IS HIS PERSONAL LIFE AND IS NOBODIES BUSINESS. HE IS TRULY A CLASS ACT AND IF ANY OF YOU SAW HIM IN IRAQ WITH OUR TROOPS YOU WOULD KNOW THAT HE IS A TRUE AMERICAN AND LOVES HIS COUNTRY AND IS GRATEFUL THAT HE IS SO BLESSED TO HAVE BEEN GIVEN SUCH A TALENT. i WILL GO SO FAR TO SAY THAT IF EITHER OF THE FAMILIES OF THE DECEASED NEED FINANCIAL HELP WITH SERVICES HER WILL BE THERE TO EXTEND A HELPING HAND. WE HAVE HEARD NOTHING THAT THESE FATALITIES WAS CAUSED BY LIQUOR. POERHAPS THESE MEN HAD BEEN UP LATE AND JUST SIMPLU FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. MAY GOD PUT HIS LOVING ARMS AROUND EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THIS TRAGIC ACCIDENT AND HELP EACH OF THEM (TRACE AND HIS BAND INCLUDED) GET THROUGH THIS.
