WKMG’s new 7 p.m. newscast had its first scoop Wednesday night — video of an accident involving a WESH 2 News live van stuck under Interstate 4.

According to Local 6, the Channel 2 van nearly rolled over when the live mast became stuck under the I-4 overpass on Wymore Road, near WESH’s headquarters.

In video shown on WKMG, firefighters attempted to stabilize the vehicle before safely removing WESH reporter Greg Fox and a photographer, identified as “Frank.” Neither was injured.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, “The driver said he had been on Interstate 4 and passed under another overpass successfully and did not know how the mast got into the ‘up’ position.”
