Tom Brokaw Unhurt After Car Crash in New York

Brokaws_12.4.jpgNBC’s Tom Brokaw and his wife Meredith were involved in a three car accident along New York’s Bruckner Expressway this afternoon, which resulted in the death of the driver of one of the other vehicles.

Here’s a statement from the Brokaws:

Tom and Meredith Brokaw, at around 1pm today, were in a three vehicle accident on the Bruckner Expressway. The Brokaws were in the far left lane when they noticed a spool of cable bouncing along the far right lane. Just then, a green SUV in the right lane came up fast and tried to avoid the cable. The driver lost control of her vehicle and slid into the middle lane, forcing a mail truck into the Brokaw lane of traffic.

As the mail truck careened into the Brokaw lane, Tom hit the brakes hard and skidded along the median. When the mail truck catapulted the median the Brokaw vehicle slid into it. Neither Tom nor Meredith were injured but tragically the driver of the SUV was thrown from her vehicle and killed.

Tom and Meredith are greatly saddened by this loss of life.
