Dale Earnhardt Jr., wife Amy, and daughter Isla were safe and taken to a hospital for evaluation following a plane crash on Thursday afternoon in Elizabethton, Tennessee, Earnhardt’s sister, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, confirmed via Twitter.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., his wife and child — and the family dog — all survived a fiery plane crash on Thursday in Tennessee, according to police officials.
The NASCAR legend’s private plane ran off the end of the runway at Elizabethton Municipal Airport in Carter County around 3:40 p.m. and became engulfed in flames, officials said.
