West Virginia reporter Tori Yorgey went viral after she was hit by a car on live television and got back up to continue reporting. 

On Wednesday, the WSAZ-TV reporter was on the scene of a water main break when what appeared to be a white SUV hit Yorgey and knocked over the camera.

In a clip of the incident, Yorgey is seen on a split-screen with anchor Tim Irr and is hit from behind by the vehicle.

“Oh my god! I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay. I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay, Tim,” Yorgey tells her colleague.

The reporter noted that she was also struck by a car in the same fashion while she was in college. When the driver of the SUV apologizes for the accident, Yorgey can be heard saying, “That’s live TV for you. It’s all good.” 

After Yorgey manages to get back on her feet, she fixes the camera to continue reporting. Yorgey reveals she thought she was in a safe spot where she could report but was wrong and proceeded to move the camera to another area. 

As Yorgey moved the camera, Irr explained that she was in the area of the water main break, where there were several emergency vehicles. Due to the emergency vehicles, drivers can get confused about where to go and become distracted.

“That woman was so nice though. She didn’t mean to. It was an accident, and I know it was. I’m ok, everything’s fine,” Yorgey tells Irr.

She then seamlessly transitions back to reporting on the water main break. “Again Tim, we’ll get back to the report. We’re on Roxalana Hills Drive in Dunbar, this is where that water break is,” she says.

Following the incident, Yorgey went to the hospital and was checked out on Thursday. According to her Twitter bio, Yorgey was born and raised outside of Philadelphia and attended Penn State University.

Friday will be her last day working for WSAZ-TV. Next, she will be going to Pittsburgh to work for ABC affiliate WTAE.
