Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with an update on traffic in Chicago.

Television station WLS has a glass window studio along a Chicago Street. The anchorman was delivering the news when a minivan crashed through a window. Listen.

Mr. RAVI BAICHWAL (Anchorman, WLS-TV): Michelle Gallardo joining us now live from the scene of one fire tonight where two people were injured, Michelle, and the weather made the rescue work all that much moreā€¦

(Soundbite of crashing)


INSKEEP: Nobody was injured, and just think of all the things the anchor could've said on the air.


Mr. BAICHWAL: Ho, ho, ho.
