- Tori Yorgey of WSAZ-TV in Charleston was reporting on a water main break when a vehicle collided with her live on the air.
- Yorgey was rattled, but didn’t miss a beat – informing viewers “I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay… that’s live TV for you“.
- Yorgey finished her live shot, mentioning that she was once hit by a car “just like that” in college, and adding “You know, it’s my last week on the job, so I’d think that would happen“.
- Yorgey’s bio states that she grew up in the Philadelphia area and is a diehard Philly sports fan. She graduated from Penn State University and previously interned at FOX 29, the same station where reporter Steve Keeley was memorably drilled by a curtain of snow from a plow while reporting on a 2014 storm in South Jersey.According to More Than The Curve, Yorgey is a 2014 graduate of Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.
