WESH News Van Gets Jammed Under Orlando Overpass, WKMG Reports

A WESH news van got stuck under an Orlando overpass on Wednesday after the vehicle’s mast had been accidentally raised.

Reporter Greg Fox was riding in the van along with photographer Frank Burt when the raised mast struck the underside of a highway overpass, tipping the vehicle onto two wheels.

A fire rescue crew was called to the scene, according to the Orlando Sentinel, and rescue workers steadied the van using jacks so that Fox and Burt could exit safely.

Orlando CBS-affiliate WKMG reported on its rivals’ misfortune during the station’s  7 p.m. newscast.

The WESH crew told officials that the van had successfully passed under another overpass before the accident, leading them to believe that the mast’s deployment was a technical malfunction.

Update:
A tipster has pointed us to a slideshow of the van on WESH’s website. Here it is.
