WABC Reporter Nearly Run Over by Truck During Live Shot


WABC reporter Kristin Thorne was just about to start her live report as part of the New York ABC owned station’s team coverage of the most recent snowfall to hit the area when she was almost hit by a large truck.

The driver honked his/her horn before barreling through the shot. Thorne ducked out of the way and told everyone she was OK, adding, “We had someone, obviously, who was not happy that we were standing in the road.”

NYPD Creates Media-Free Bubble Around Zuccotti Park During Occupy Raid
