Reporter Gets Hit By Car During Live Broadcast But Gets Up To Complete Her Report

Reporter Gets Hit By Car During Live Broadcast But Gets Up To Complete Her Report

Although the young reporter was knocked over by the car, she swiftly picked herself back up and continued with the live broadcast

This is the shocking moment a reporter was hit by a car during a live broadcast:

WSAZ-TV reporter Tori Yorgey was beginning to report on a water main break in Dunbar, West Virginia, USA, when a vehicle veered towards her, throwing her to the floor and her camera equipment with her.

At the moment she was about to respond to news anchor Tim Irr, Tori was knocked over by the silver SUV.

The camera captured the entire incident, with Tori exclaiming: "Oh my God, I've just got hit by a car but I'm ok. I just got hit by a car but I'm ok, Tim. I'm ok. Woo. We're all good."


As she was getting up, the driver of the vehicle asked whether she was ok, to which Tori responded: "I'm ok, yeah you know that's live TV for you. It's all good. I actually got hit by a car in college too, just like that. I'm so glad I'm ok."

Seemingly speaking to herself, she went on: "You're ok, you are ok. We're all good."

The woman driving the car can be heard apologising to Tori, with her replying: "You are so sweet and you are ok. It is all good. Oh lord. You know it's my last week on the job and I think this would happen."


Saying that her 'whole life just flashed before her eyes', she went on to move the equipment adding: "This is live TV and everything's ok. I thought I was in a safe spot but clearly we might need to move the camera over a bit."

Tim went on to say that there were a lot of emergency vehicles around which causes confusion among other drivers.

Heroically continuing with her report, Tori said: "That woman was so nice though. She didn't mean to, it was an accident, I know it was and I'm ok everything's fine. But, again Tim, we'll get back to the report."

And off she went.


After the clip was shared on Twitter, people commented with their concern. One wrote: "Is she ok? It looks like she’s in pain after being hit by the car. I hope she’s ok."

Another added: "She deserves a raise and/or promotion! That's dedication."

A third commended her: "I can’t stop thinking about this. Tori Yorgey is hit by a car during her live shot, reassures everyone that she is okay, all while fixing her own camera shot. The one-man-band is never appreciated enough."

What a trooper.
