Bronx, NY (KLTV) - Former "NBC Nightly News" anchor Tom Brokaw, and his wife Meredith, were involved in an accident earlier Friday afternoon.
The accident occured around 1:00 p.m. near the Sheridan Expressway in New York. Authorities say the Brokaws were traveling down the expressway when they spotted a spool of cable in the far left lane. Then, a green SUV came up fast and tried to avoid the cable.
The SUV driver lost control, sliding into the middle lane, forcing a mail truck into the Brokaws lane of travel. The mail truck hit a median and the Brokaw's vehicle slid into it.
The Brokaws were not injured in the accident, however the SUV driver was tossed from her vehicle and killed.
