Erin Andrews Reveals Scary Near-Death Experience During Week 1 Of NFL Season

Erin Andrews had a near- death experience while getting to work in Minneapolis to cover the Week 1 game between the Vikings and Packers.

According to Andrews, her driver fell asleep at the wheel while she was in the middle of a conference call with her Fox colleagues. Andrews says she noticed her driver was full-on snoring while on a zoom call.

“I’m typing, headphones are working, we’re good. I hear snoring. I know it’s not Greg Olsen, Kevin Burkhardt, or Aaron Rodgers snoring. It’s my driver who fell asleep at the wheel. On a highway from Chicago!” Andrews revealed.

“Timeout. What do you mean he fell asleep at the wheel?” Thompson asked

“Snoring. Sleeping,” “Moving. 65 miles an hour,” “I am so thankful I put my phone on mute because we’re on a Zoom. I put my phone on mute and I go ‘Are you effing sleeping?!

Andrews said she eventually woke up the driver and got him to pull over to get coffee.

“So now I have the quarterback of the team I’m trying to work on, I’m trying to take notes. I have full blown anxiety. This is not the way I want to go down. This is not the way I want to die.”

I go ‘pull over at a Starbucks.’ I make him pull over at a McDonald’s. I go in, I get him a coffee. He doesn’t drink it. The entire car ride I am like ‘ahem ahem ahem’ monitoring if he’s sleeping at the wheel.”

Thankfully Andrews made it out okay and was able to tell the story.
