A West Virginia reporter was struck by a car during a live report on a weather-related water main break on Wednesday night, and even though she was knocked down, she picked herself back up and continued her reporting.

What are the details?

Reporter Tori Yorgey utterly shocked viewers during a recent live shot when a vehicle struck her and knocked her flat to the ground.

Video captured the moment Yorgey was telling WSAZ-TV reporter Tim Irr about a local water main break when a car passed behind her — but hit her, knocking her over.

“Oh my God!” she can be heard saying off-camera. “I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK. I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK, Tim. I’m OK. We’re all good.”

Irr, who had only an audio feed of what was taking place, responded, “Well, that’s a first for you on TV, Tori,” and asked if she was hurt.

“That’s live TV for you!” Yorgey, her voice wavering, quipped. “It’s all good. I actually got hit by a car in college, too, just like that. I am so glad I’m OK.”

At that point, the driver of the vehicle appears to approach the reporter to ask her if she was all right and to apologize.

Yorgey graciously insisted that she was fine and that everything was OK.

“Ma’am, you are so sweet, and you are OK,” she told the woman.

After a few seconds of exchange with the driver, Yorgey continued her segment.

“But again, Tim, we’ll get back to the report, right? We’re on Roxalana Hills Driver in Dunbar. This is where that water main break is,” she continued.

At the time of this reporting, video of the incident has gone viral on the internet, with one video in particular racking up at least 1.8 million views.

What else?

In a tweet following the incident, Irr wrote, “Even though she jumped right up and said she was ok, I was still concerned. Trying to remain calm at the moment was not easy for all involved. But we tried to the best of our ability. In hindsight, I’m grateful they stayed with her to make sure she was indeed ok.”

“Frightening moment for Tori,” he added. “She’s young, but is a pro for sure.”

TODAY on Thursday tweeted that responders arrived to the scene and ended up transporting Yorgey to a local hospital to be checked out, and she is said to be doing fine.
