LA reporter covers fatal hit-and-run interrupted by another car crash

A Los Angeles TV reporter got the shock of his life when a Hit and run car wreck was caught live on camera behind him – while he was just covering a fatal hit-and-run collision at the same intersection a month earlier.

KTLA reporter Gene Kang was doing a live standup report on the corner of Hoover Street and 84th Street in Los Angeles on Thursday, discussing how dangerous the intersection is, when he was startled by two limousines slamming behind him . The film crew then zoomed in on one of the drivers who made a left turn and then fled the accident.

“What the -?” someone blurts out during the escape, but the video apparently erased the completion of the sentence.

“Our security guard Walter Mann yelled ‘Back’ and we moved as the car sped towards us. It swerved at the last second and hit the car,” Kang later reported.

The news team then called 911 to report the crash. Officers at the scene told them they suspect the hit-and-run driver was involved in a previous crime. Officers took away a license plate that had fallen off in the collision.
