WIN news camera operator Andrew Palmer had an unexpected brush with crime yesterday.
As he was heading to a political press conference, he noticed a police operation set up. Journalistic instinct kicked in to get some footage, in case it was part of a larger story or good for some background film.
Within two minutes, a car allegedly hooning came along the road and hit road spikes, narrowly missing Andrew.
Alex Johnston, News Director for WIN News Tasmania, talks to Rick Fontyn this morning about the situation and the incredible footage.
