Modern news sets have plenty of large screens. Whether it is to show giant maps of impending weather or team coverage of a big local event, the huge screens can be helpful to the audience. It turns out tought that they might also confuse the anchors. That's what happened during one newscast as the anchors sat in front of one of their large screens. They were describing a near-tragedy that occurred as an out-of-control car sped right at a group of people, only to be stopped by a pole right in front of them. It was all caught on camera and the footage played behind the anchors. As they watched it on the monitors in front of them, they saw a car barreling at them and, not thinking straight, they forgot it was a video screen and thought the vehicle was going to hit them. They freaked out, all live during the news.
The anchors unharmed in the incident. No word on if anyone was injured at the actual site of the accident.
