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.

Adkins is scheduled to perform a concert with Martina McBride tonight in Bossier City, LA. The venue says, as of now, the show will continue as scheduled.

Most likely, the driver of the pick-up truck was impaired (drunk) or distracted (texting). I also read that the occupants of the pick-up truck came from a casino, perhaps that would explain the condition of the driver. Condolences to the driver and his passenger's family though. As for the band members, glad they're all safe, albeit injured. If they were in a smaller vehicle other than a bus, the damage would have been much greater.

the people in the truck was not a grandfather and grandson. jeffrey ferguson was only 36. and i think justin was 21. so before you tell someone to get their facts straight, you do to.

Some comments are just so unfeeling. Hicks as you call them are people too and have family to grieve for them. Whether they were hicks or not is of no concern. 2 people died. If you have never lost a loved one suddenly before, then you have no idea what that family is going through. My heart goes out to them.
