A vehicle crashed into a crime scene live shot during a Colorado Springs station’s morning newscast.
- KRDO reporter Krystal Story was live on “Good Morning Colorado” during the 6 a.m. hour reporting from a shooting scene.
- During the live shot, an off-screen vehicle crashed into the crime scene.
- In the video of the accident, Story’s eyes dart off screen, apparently seeing the vehicle.
- She quickly moved out of camera range and thumps can be heard.
- The camera jerked away briefly, then wobbled a bit before the station cut to a live camera shot and the anchors took over.
- Shortly before the control room cut away, sirens can be heard — as well as a female voice saying “are you OK?”
- The station later tweeted a clip of the incident while also letting viewers know Story and the videographer Peter Miller are “Okay.”
If you were watching Good Morning Colorado at 6, you may have seen our news crew dive out of the way as a driver plowed into a crime scene. We can thankfully say reporter Krystal Story and photographer Pete Miller are both Okay! pic.twitter.com/7dn5I40CcT
