State in state of emergency as 11in of snow in one day, work will fire me if I don't come in. Can they do this? What if I have an accident?

I am a car salesman

They can do it since they have employed you and require that you report to work as required. However, you could try to notify them about the snow or the hindrance causing you not to go to work. They will definitely consider and understand the situation and will probably not fire you.

The state he lives in has declared a "state of Emergency" due to a snowfall of 11". He is afraid to drive to work (at a car dealeship) due to conditions of the road. Can he be fired for not attempting to come in for his shift? If he attempts to go and has an accident who would be responsible?

Depends which state you live in . Is it a right to work state? They sound like jerks that will probably stay home themselves. I'd still try to go to work though if you like your job. Good luck.

Depends on your state. Some states - if declared a state of emergency - will not allow any but Emergency vehicles on roads. In that case you could not be fired. Some places use "levels" of emergency 1 = hazardous conditions 2 = only if absolutely needed and 3 = only Emergency vehicles. Where I live driving on level 3 will get you a trip to the Jail.
