A WSAZ-TV had an eventful night in her final week to close out her tenure with the West Virginia television station. Tori Yorgey was on assignment giving her live weather report but was struck by a car before she could provide the information. 

Anchor Tim Irr stated in the video, “And now we’re starting to experience unfortunately in freeze-thaw we see this, water main breaks” before tossing it over to Yorgey to give her report. 

The vehicle struck Yorgey. However, she gets right back up.

“Oh my God, I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay. I just got hit by a car, but I’m ok, Tim,” Yorgey said. “I’m okay; we’re all good. I’m okay; yeah, that’s live tv for you; it’s all good. I actually got hit by a car in college like that too.”

The WSAZ-TV reporter would also comfort the driver, letting the women behind that wheel know that she’s okay and not seriously hurt. 

“I am so glad I’m ok, you’re ok, you’re ok. We’re all good. You know what? It’s a one-woman band. We’re good, Tim,” Yorgey said. “Ma’am, you are so sweet, and you are ok. It is all good. Oh, Lord. You know it’s my last week on the job, and I think this would happen specifically to me, Tim.”

“Were you bumped down low, Tori, or were you hit up high… I couldn’t really tell… I just saw you disappear out of the screen,” Irr asked Yorgey. 

As Yorgey gathered herself following the incident, she stated that her “whole life just flashed before my eyes.” Adding that, they “might need to move the camera over a bit,” Yorgey said.

“Tori’s in an area right now where there has been a water main break,” Irr explained to viewers.

Furthermore, Irr went on Twitter to further explain the situation. Some might think Irr had zero concern for his colleague, but he explained that those at the station were only receiving the audio.

CNN National Correspondent Nadia Romero criticized pro-life advocates for reportedly interrupting her live shot outside of the last clinic to provide abortions in Mississippi. Romero was at the clinic following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The court announced its decision Friday after an unnamed source leaked its draft opinion last month. 

Following the decision, abortion will likely become illegal in Mississippi in almost all cases within the next few weeks. A video posted on Mediate shows Romero’s standup guarded by a Mississippi police officer.

While reporting from the clinic at the center of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Romero claims that pro-life protestors were “threatening” and “confrontational” to her and the camera crew.

“It has not been a good morning here. It has been confrontational. It has been very threatening,” Romero said outside the last standing abortion clinic in the state following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“They want to be on TV, let’s put them on TV,” the reporter said, stepping to the side. She reported the men did not identify themselves by name or say what group they were affiliated with,” Romero added.

On Friday, the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, which now hands over the determination of abortion legality to individual states. 

It didn’t take long for news outlets to begin sparring on the issue, and one of the more animated ones occurred on Fox News. Contributors Leo Terrell and Jessica Tarlov disputed multiple times on the topic following the ruling. 

Tarlov, a Democratic strategist and co-host of The Five, said that this decision would have dire consequences, something that made Terrell shake his head and interrupt multiple times.

“Alito made it clear that he didn’t think this it would expand to contraception and same-sex marriage, but [Clarence] Thomas said he thought they should be reevaluated, and when you consider the fact that Justices [Brett] Kavanaugh and [Neil] Gorsuch lied to the senators that they met with —” Tarlov said, per Mediaite

“They followed the law. You may not like the law, but we are a nation of laws. That’s what they did. What they basically said was if you don’t like the ruling, you go to the states,” Terrell fired back.

Tarlov and Terrell continued clashing in another segment while discussing the potential consequences. 

She said “every man that takes part in conceiving a child” should be on the hook for child support, leading to Terrell shaking his head while muttering, “oh God.”

“Stop saying, ‘Oh God!’” Tarlov said. 

“I can’t believe you’re using this quality time to push a democratic agenda. Go ahead. I’ll be quiet. Go ahead. Keep talking. It’s ridiculous,” Terrell snapped.

“I’m sorry. Were you pregnant recently?” Tarlov stated.

“Every time I come on this show, I’m attacked,” Terrell mumbled.
