ASHEVILLE, N.C. – An SUV lost control behind a North Carolina news reporter as she was doing her live shot Friday afternoon in Asheville.

It happened to WLOS reporter Lauren Brigman as she was covering the dangerous snowstorm in the western part of the state.

“A perfect example of why emergency responders & North Carolina DOT crews want folks to stay off the roads if at all possible,” WLOS wrote on Facebook when posting the video.

The reporter later tweeted that the driver was ok.

As of Saturday morning, eight people were dead nationwide in connection to the storm including six in North Carolina, one in Virginia and one in Kentucky.
