Talk about news as it happens, check out this video. Adrienne Pedersen's live report on rising gas prices for WFLA in Tampa, Florida, was  what you would call a smash hit.

As the reporter was broadcasting her story in front of the camera, a taxicab and a compact car collided in the background. The crash sent both cars spinning toward the reporter and cameraman.

Watch the accident after the jump. Pay attention to the first 15 seconds of the video.
