A WHP reporter and photographer preparing for a liveshot were forced to run from their own livetruck when the truck’s 40-foot mast collapsed. “Our photographer Bill and reporter Ewa Roman bolt from the truck when they hear a loud pop,” the station explained in a post on the station’s Facebook page. “Luckily no one was injured.”

And that includes passersby who were in the crowded parking lot when the mast fell across parked cars, with the dish and mastcam crashing into the pavement. The incident was captured on surveillance video from a business, and posted to the station’s website:

It remains unclear why the mast collapsed.
