NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt Jr. Survives Fiery Plane Crash

NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his family are thankful to be alive this morning after they were involved in a fiery plane crash.

Earnhardt, along with his wife and daughter, were aboard the plane set to land at small Tennessee airport Thursday.

While landing, the plane ran off the end of the runway and caught fire.

Miraculously, no one on the flight was seriously injured.

The local police chief says with the way the plane looked, it’s incredible their injuries weren’t worse.

Earnhardt Jr. and his family, along with both crew members, were taken to the hospital but released hours later with minor injuries.

The National Transportation Saftey Board says it will start an investigation into the crash soon.
