Reporter Tori Yorgey tweets about the viral response to being hit by a vehicle live on television

As, and everyone else, reported earlier today, reporter Tori Yorgey was struck by a vehicle while reporting from the scene of a water main break in West Virginia. The Plymouth Whitemarsh High School graduate works for WSAZ-TV.

The video went viral and people across the nation commented on her accent, the fact that this is the second time this happened to her (the first time was in college at Penn State), and that the anchor back at the studio didn’t freak out when it occurred.

In a tweet, Yorgey thanked everyone for the outpouring of support and let the public know that she was fine and that the anchor couldn’t actually see her live at the scene (so he didn’t know what had occurred).

Below is the tweet:

Wow. I am flattered by the kindness and well wishes. I am feeling fine, just a little sore! Thank you all so much. For the record: @WSAZirr couldn’t see what was happening in that moment. He is one of the kindest people I know, and was first to call to check on me.
