Reporter Narrowly Avoids Death on Air



KTVU reporter Alex Savidge was reporting live yesterday from the scene of a train derailment in Fremont, California. As he was doing an on-air segment, two cars collided behind him and careened off the road, right into the parking lot where he and cameraman Chip Vaughan were standing! We heard them say they are alright before the station cut back to the studio. The station aired a followup that shows they are alright, but you can tell that they are a bit shaken by a near-death experience.

The footage also apparently caught someone in the act of larceny. When the camera swings around, check out the guy grabbing something from the passenger side of the car parked in front of the store, going into the store, and then taking off on foot.

Whoa! That was the part that wasn't on-air live. I wonder if the local authorities caught it.
