Live TV Car Crash

Live TV Car Crash, There’s no telling what can happen on live TV. Reporters doing live broadcasts from the field have always had to keep a cautious eye on their surroundings, but usually all they deal with is a prankster in the crowd trying to get on camera.

Wednesday morning a crew from Tampa, Florida NBC affiliate WFLA inadvertently caught breaking news on camera during a live shot.

Adrienne Pedersen was reporting on gas prices when a taxicab and a compact car crashed behind her.

The taxicab appeared to enter the intersection at the same time as the compact car.

The cab struck the compact car on the driver’s door.

Both cars spun out and headed toward the reporter and cameraman.

“The cab was moving so fast that it threw both vehicles through the intersection and onto the curb,” said WFLA cameraman Rugene Moore. “The cab was literally spinning out towards us. Luckily a soft patch of dirt in a planter stopped them.”
