NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw was involved in a fatal 3-car crash in New York on Friday (December 4). Tom and his wife Meredith Brokaw weren’t injured in the accident but there was one fatal victim.
The Brokaws just released the following statement: “Tom and Meredith Brokaw, at around 1 p.m. today, were in a three vehicle accident on the Bruckner Expressway. The Brokaws were in the far left lane when they noticed a spool of cable bouncing along the far right lane.
Just then, a green SUV in the right lane came up fast and tried to avoid the cable. The driver lost control of her vehicle and slid into the middle lane, forcing a mail truck into the Brokaw lane of traffic. As the mail truck careened into the Brokaw lane, Tom hit the brakes hard and skidded along the median. When the mail truck catapulted the median the Brokaw vehicle slid into it.
Neither Tom nor Meredith were injured but tragically the driver of the SUV was thrown from her vehicle and killed. Tom and Meredith are greatly saddened by this loss of life.”
The fatal victim has been identified as a 28 year-old woman who worked near the scene of the accident and an unidentified male was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
