Veteran WESH Employee Killed in Highway Accident

A WESH employee was killed on her way to work today in an early-morning highway crash on Interstate 4 in Deltona, FL.

Linda Fern had worked at the Orlando NBC-affiliate for more than 27 years, according to the station. She coordinated live shots and satellite feeds throughout the morning newscasts. Fern’s vehicle was reportedly struck from behind, sending her car into the woods, around 1:30 a.m. Police are investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.

WESH reported the news on its noon newscast. “All of us here at WESH 2 will miss Linda,” anchor Jason Guy said.
