Social Media Takes Over as Local News Station Forced Off-Air When Truck Rams Into Station

A local Baltimore, Maryland ABC station was forced off-air today after a man rammed his truck through the station’s front door, and barricaded himself inside for over four hours, our sister site TVSpy reports.

And since the situation happening at their station prevented the network from reporting on-air for hours, social media took over.

The man was eventually taken into custody, and shortly before the station went back on-air at 5pm, reporter Christian Schaffer posted a vine of the actual truck ramming into the station.
