When Doug Brauner, reporter for CBS Sacramento, got assigned to do a segment on crosswalk safety, he might have thought it was a bum beat. “How am I going to make this interesting?” I assume he was wondering. “Am I just going to be standing on a sidewalk, pretending to cross the street? If only there was something dramatic that could happen that would perfectly illustrate the dangers facing pedestrians…”
Well, thank goodness for drunk drivers!
Or allegedly drunk drivers. Whatever the reason, while Brauner was filming the segment, a black truck shot through and ran the red light directly in front of him. And also directly in front of the camera. And also directly in front of the police officer who was parked just feet away. Whoops!
Unsurprisingly, when Brauner got to finally do his segment, it mostly became about the driver. Obviously, this means that half of Sacramento will now die because they never learned about crosswalk safety. So sad.
