A news crew for Tampa’s WFLA was injured Wednesday afternoon as their microwave truck overturned along a stretch of highway in Sarasota.
Reporter Jackie Barron and photographer Jim Hockett were driving along Interstate 75 when the truck’s rear left tire blew out, according to a report from The Tampa Tribune. The truck flipped to its side, eventually skidding to a halt on the side of the road.
The accident happened just before 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday as Barron and Hockett were returning from an assignment in Venice.
Following the crash, Barron and Hockett were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
