KGTV Sports Reporter Ben Higgins Nearly Run Over Live On Air (VIDEO)

A local sports reporter narrowly avoided being run over by a car while giving a live, on air report on Thursday.

Ben Higgins, the sports director for KGTV in San Diego, was in Tucson, covering a March Madness basketball game which was happening there. But as he was talking, an SUV could be seen driving in reverse on the street and coming closer and closer towards him. Higgins didn't notice anything until the car was almost on top of him. Luckily, his cameraman rushed forward to alert the moving vehicle.
