WPTV morning anchor Roxanne Stein has been missing from the station’s newscast since late last month. Turns out it’s for good reason, she had a bad accident while riding her horse Bamboo at ‘Palms Stables’ of Wellington on December 22nd.
Stein was on WPTV via Skype to talk about what happened and according to a story posted on WPTV.com she and the horse had a miscommunication on a jump. Both ended up crashing to the ground and while she luckily fell clear of Bamboo, her left hand rolled under her body. She had surgery on December 28th and had to have bones reconstructed with steel plate and screws.
