During the snowstorm on Martin Luther King Day in Utah, Donny Osmond was among many involved in car accidents.


While the Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) and Utah Department of Transportation warned drivers to stay off the roads before the storm hit due to dangerous road condition, it still resulted in countless accidents in Utah.

On Monday night the Utah Highway Patrol reported that 234 vehicles accidents occurred, and Donny was one of them.

Following the accident, Donny posted a picture of the smashed vehicle and told fans that he “hit a tree” while driving during the snow storm. Donny was unscathed and had a helper, Jackie, who helped him out, and thanked her in his tweet:


The 61-year-old singer is probably best remembered for the series, ‘Donny & Marie, which ran from 1976–1979 and again from 1998-2000, featuring his younger sister Marie. But before that, Donnie and four of his elder brothers became famous as the ‘Osmonds’ during the mid-1960s.

During the years Donnie appeared in numerous television shows and hosted ‘Pyramid,’ a syndicated version of the game show hosted by Dick Clark, and ran from 2002-2004 in the US and made a comeback again in 2007 in the UK. The actor also got his dancing shoes on, and did so well that he became the winner of the ninth season of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’

The multitalented entertainer featured in a variety of films through the years. His first appearance was in ‘Goin Coconuts’ in 1978 with his sister Marie, with the most recent being ‘College Road Trip’ in 2008.


At the beginning of September 2008, Donnie and Marie teamed up again for their stint in Las Vegas, at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. During a 90-minute ‘Donny & Marie’ show, the pair performed in a 750 seat showroom at the Flamingo Hotel, with the backing of eight dancers and a nine-piece band.

By 2012, the show and Donny earned three Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Best of Las Vegas Awards. They included ‘Best Show,’ ‘Best All-Around Performer,’ and ‘Best Singer. The following year he earned the ‘Best Singer’ title for the second time.

Although the show was supposed to be a limited engagement, it did so well that it got extended until November 2016. Additionally, the old style showroom got renamed the ‘Donny and Marie Theater; after its remodel in 2014.

But sadly, a few months ago, Donny experienced the loss of a dear friend, Robin Leach, when he passed away at the 76 years of age from complications following a stroke. On August 24, 2018, Donny took to Twitter to pay tribute to his dear friend with the message:


Robin’s career began in the early sixties and hosted ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’ for eleven years, the role he was famously known for.

Following a successful career, Robin moved to Las Vegas during the nineties where he regularly wrote for the Las Vegas Sun and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. All those who knew Robin spoke in high praise of his character, and he will surely be missed.
