Reporter keeps cool while on-air crash happens behind her (video)

On air car crash

Reporter continues news story as crash happens behind her on live TV.

An on-camera car crash behind an on-air WFLA-TV reporter didn’t faze her as much as the high gas prices that were the topic of her report. While Adrienne Pedersen was explaining the relationship of gas and oil prices, a car and a cab collided directly behind her with a solid thud, then spinning around as Pedersen stood there nonplussed, and perhaps unaware, not turning around to look until the studio news person pointed out what had just happened.


We’re not sure whether to praise Pedersen for keeping her cool during the incident, or to criticize her for missing a breaking—or perhaps non-braking—story.
