Tori Yorgey, who is a reporter at WSAZ, was covering the weather and a water main break when an SUV hit, her sending her flying into the camera, Fox News reported.

She quickly assured viewers and anchor Tim Irr that she was OK.

“Oh, my god! I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK. I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK Tim,” Yorgey said.

After making sure the driver was OK, Yorgey fixed her camera and continued with the water main story.

“But again, Tim, we’ll get back to the report, right? We’re on Roxalana Hills Drive in Dunbar. This is where the water main break is,” Yorgey said in the video.

This was not the first time a vehicle had hit Yorgey, Huffington Post reported. She told Irr that she had been in a similar situation in college.

She did go to a hospital to be checked out.

Yorgey said this is her last week at WSAZ. She had announced last week that she was leaving the television station for another opportunity.
