If you look over Tampa news reporter Adrienne Pedersen's left shoulder, you might be able to see two cars colliding.  This car crash happened on live television.


While doing show prep for "The Noe Show," I randomly stumbled onto this video.  I mentioned it on my show today and couldn't resist doing a story about it.  When I saw this video earlier today with the most-elusive call screener in the Capital Region, Mr. Brian Cady, we were literally stunned.  How often do you actually see a car accident in the background while a news reporter is setting up a separate story?  Crazy.

How about the news lady back in the studio?  She was completely calm when the accident initially happened.  She had the demeanor as if she was filing her nails and looked up only to say, "Oh, hmm, look at that.  A little fender bender.  (Yawn.)"  She even cracked a joke that maybe the high gas prices distracted the drivers.  Good thing the people involved in the accident were okay or she'd definitely be in hot water for cracking a joke about someone who ended up injured or worse.
