Video of the Week – January 22, 2022

Who knew that local television reporting could be dangerous?  Tori Yorgey of WSAZ-TV in Charleston, West Virginia could provide some insight.  Yorgey was reporting on a water main break in nearby Dunbar during an evening broadcast on January 19, when she was struck by a white S.U.V. and knocked down.  The camera fell to the ground as well, and from outside the shot, Yorgey could be heard telling her in-studio colleague, “I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK.”

Regardless of Yorgey’s nonchalant demeanor, it was a frightening episode.
