Southeastern U.S. states have been bombarded by icy conditions in recent weeks. And despite the fact that local stations report the slippery situations as a way to help save lives (and gain viewers), it seems even the news vans themselves are not immune to the hazardous conditions.

Texas publication Shelby County Today reports a van/live truck from KTBS, the ABC affiliate for the Shreveport, La. area, was traveling south on Highway 96 when it lost control and slid across the highway’s northbound lanes and rolled over.

The driver was transported to a local hospital, but his injuries were not described in the publication, so there’s no indication if it was serious or not. State troopers are still investigating the accident.

Since winter still isn’t over yet, please remember: be careful on those roads. You don’t want to become part of the story.
