Two people in North Carolina have been killed after a tree fell on the car they were riding in, according to local officials. The Greenville, South Carolina-based station announced that their anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer were both covering the impact of rain in Polk County. Both of the men were in their mid-30s and had been working at WYFF for 11 years. The incident occurred just north of the South Carolina state line, in an area considered dangerous and vulnerable to flash flooding.
