Regan Smith and Paul Menard were uninjured in a road accident while in Colorado Wednesday morning.

The two Sprint Cup Series drivers, Smith’s wife Megan and a friend were in a Chevy Silverado driving to a ski slope when the accident happened at approximately 8:45 a.m..

The foursome escaped injury after the vehicle being driven by Smith slid through a patch of ice, skidded off the road and into several trees.

Both Smith and Menard will compete in Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

My guess is this was caused by overconfidence - in himself as a driver and in the SUV, which for some reason people think are immune to icy conditions.  I expect speeding tickets from these guys, not boneheaded accidents.
