In today's culture of the "money shot," photojournalists will often place themselves in harm's way for a chance to get increasingly impressive footage. Recently, one cameraman was sent running for his life when a police chase and crash sent the suspect's car careening out of control directly toward him.
Victor Park is a cameraman based in Los Angeles. On February 27, he set up at the corner of Crenshaw and Wilshire in an attempt to capture a passing police chase. As the suspect vehicle approached the intersection, it struck another one (Park said he didn't notice the second car there), which sent it out of control directly toward him. Thankfully, he saw the events unfolding and managed to just get out of the way, the car missing him by what appears to be inches, its rotation stopped by the curb just enough to give him a margin to escape. You can see another angle of the close call below:
Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in the collision and the suspect was arrested at the scene. Nonetheless, it's a stark reminder of the danger of putting oneself in harm's way to get a shot.
