Erin Andrews had a big scare on the road last week.

Andrews, co-host with Charissa Thompson on the iHeart Radio podcast “Calm Down with Erin and Charissa,” revealed on the show that her driver fell asleep at the wheel when she was en route from Chicago to Green Bay to work the Packers-Vikings game this past week.

As she explained, she was on a conference call with fellow Fox broadcasters Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen with members of the Packers, including Aaron Rodgers. This is where things got dangerous.

“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 exclaimed.

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

“Snoring. Sleeping,” Andrews affirmed.

Thompson was concerned.  “And the car is moving? We’re not parked?” she asked.

Andrews continued the harrowing story. “Moving. 65 miles an hour,” she said. “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?!” Wakes up, Clark Griswold, it was awful. 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…”

The rest of the car ride was an anxious experience.

“After Aaron [Rodgers] gets off, I go ‘pull over at a Starbucks,’” she said. “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.”
