NC stay off the roads today/tonight. 5 minutes after helping these folks I center punched a pine tree. All good. Probably just needs a new alignment. pic.twitter.com/OfA5Q28jew— Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr. (@DaleJr) January 17, 2018
The latest snowstorm has affected most of the South and East coast. And if you've ever been in the South during a snowstorm you know it can get messy really quick. You would think professional drivers would have a better grip on things but sometimes there's just nothing you can do!
According to WKRN Dale Earnhardt Jr. sent out a warning to fellow North Carolina drivers not to venture out into a snowstorm after he slid off the road and hit a tree.
To be fair, the crash wasn't due to reckless driving or not paying attention. Earnhardt had just used his winch to help a sedan out of a ditch when he then drove off the road and into a tree. Nobody was injured and his truck had minor damage but still - if the weather is keeping Junior off the road, be sure and take extra caution!
