This afternoon, Tom Brokaw and his wife survived a fatal three cars accident on a busy New York City highway. While avoiding a spool of wire, a woman lost control of her vehicle and hit a mail truck in the left lane. She got herself killed in the process and injured the mail truck driver.
According to Brokaw the woman driving a green SUV apparently lost control while trying to avoid a spool of cable. The mail truck was forced into the left lane leaving no option for Brokaw, but to apply brakes very hard. This made his car skidded along the median. When the mail truck catapulted the median the Brokaw vehicle slid into it. Neither Tom nor his wife Meredith were injured.
Here is a video of the scene of accident:
