      Agreed. And what is with the up with the up to the minute updates? Traffic accidents much worse than this happen everyday. It’s routine. It’s mundane.

      What is weird is that that the reporter-chick breaks out her phone and begins snapping pics. One pic even has her on a gurney being loaded into an ambulance and what is she doing? Looking at her phone pics. In some pics she is even smiling. But where are the pics of the driver? Did she take any pics of her cameraman? No. Just herself. Smiling away. It’s just a tad narcissistic. I can only imagine how she played this fake drama out on her Facebook page.

      So, the cameraman will probably be fired for destroying a live truck and the reporter-chick will just keep sending out her self serving photos letting everyone know she is okay and that she survived.

      Yet another reason not watch local news. This is a glimpse of who they really are. Exploit everything to bring attention to themselves.

      • oh give me a break. it’s not everyday thata news station becomes the news. She was being a journalist by documenting her ordeal. That’s what she does for a living. duh! Neki is a well-known, liked and respected journalist in the area and people do care. I find it admirable that WPLG admitted their driver was at fault.

  1. I am a friend of Neki’s. She was updating her Facebook so her family and friends wouldn’t freak out when they saw the pictures. It’s faster than calling everyone. We are glad that she and the photographer are okay. I actually found out she was ok on FB before I saw it on TV. I was glad I did.
