A Virginia news crew encountered an extremely close call during Monday’s winter weather coverage.

Or at least its equipment did.

This video was taken by our sister station, WAVY News 10, in Hampton.

The camera was rolling live when an SUV careened out of control, crashed into another vehicle and came barreling to the side of the icy road, stopping inches away from the camera.

The station’s news reporter and photographer are okay. Turns out, they were in the live news truck parked nearby when the accident occurred.
