Earnhardt Jr. and his wife Amy were on the private jet with their daughter and two pilots when it ran off the runway after landing at Elizabethton Municipal Airport at 3:38 p.m. on Wednesday.

The sheriff said Earnhardt's wife, Amy, and their 1-year-old daughter were on the plane, along with the pilot, one other passenger and the family dog.

Earnhardt reportedly was flying to Bristol, Tenn., to announce Saturday night's NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series Bass Pro Shops/NRA Night Race.

A groundswell of support from fans and industry members alike was noted by Earnhardt's sister, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, in an updated statement on Friday.

Olivier Giroud gave the UEFA Europa League champions the lead in the first half before Sadio Mane bundled home the equaliser. I don't feel that we had a fair result at Old Trafford either. "I need to keep going".

After news came out that the Earnhardts were safe, NASCAR fans showed their gratitude and sense of humor by sharing a meme claiming Hillary Clinton was behind the auto crash. "We look forward to having him back in the booth next month at Darlington", they said. No serious injuries were reported. Earnhardt Jr., 44, was hospitalized and eventually discharged following the crash at Elizabethton Municipal Airport, according to CBS affiliate WJHL-TV. "Thank you for your understanding", said Kelley Earnhardt, via Twitter.

The Nashville Tennessean reports that Earnhardt's race team, JR Motorsports, is also based in Mooresville, where the NASCAR legend is from. The FAA confirmed that two pilots and three passengers were aboard the plane. "Beyond that, it's pretty much destroyed". He's also the son of the late NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt Sr., who is considered one of the sport's greatest competitors.

Photos and videos from the crash scene featuring a blackened aircraft, surrounded by billowing smoke have started to pop up on social media. Two members from the National Transportation Safety Board were sent to the crash site on Thursday.
