A man crashed a truck into the side of our building this morning. He jumped out and started ranting. He’s in custody now but the bomb squad is on its way. He left behind a suspicious bag. Most have been evacuated & a few are working to keep the news on air from a secure location.

Before he was arrested, the man placed several boxes full of paper on the sidewalk near the station’s door. Loose paper was also strewn all over the sidewalk at the scene of the crash.

The station said that a few of its staff are “working to keep the news on air” from another, secure location. No injuries have been reported.

The incident comes one week after police in Boston arrested a 68-year-old California man for threatening journalists working for the Boston Globe. Unhappy with the paper’s negative coverage of the Trump administration, the man had threatened to travel to the newspaper’s offices and kill journalists.
