Fox reporter Erin Andrews had an eventful trip to Green Bay ahead of her Week 1 assignment.

On her podcast Calm Down with Erin and Charissa, Andrews said she was on a conference call during her car ride from Chicago to Green Bay when she noticed her driver had fallen asleep at the wheel.

"I'm typing, headphones are working, we're good. I hear snoring," Andrews said (h/t Zach Koons of Sports Illustrated). "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!"

She said the car was traveling at 65 miles per hour, but they were fortunate enough to avoid a crash. It still affected the veteran television personality for the rest of the trip.

"I have full-blown anxiety," Andrews said, describing the remainder of the car ride. "This is not the way I want to go down. This is not the way I want to die."

Andrews was preparing for her sitdown interview with Aaron Rodgers ahead of the Week 1 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. Despite the drama on the road, she made it to her interview Friday and the game Sunday.
