The staff at KGO in San Francisco got a memo yesterday that one of the station's live trucks was involved in a fatal accident.
The crash happened outside San Jose City Hall.
No exact details as to what happened, but it appears that a driver ran a red light and hit another car, then one of, or both cars crashed into the KGO live truck.
"There is a body under our van. We do not know how that happened. It may be a pedestrian," the memo to staff read.
The KGO employees in the live truck, Chris Nguyen and Alex Gray were treated for some cuts and neck/back pain but appear to be OK.
The San Jose Police released this statement about the accident:
