Cameraman Killed

Cameraman covering story of dangerous intersection hit and killed

A television cameraman was hit and killed by a car -- while taping a news story about a dangerous intersection in Omaha, Nebraska. Police say 45-year-old Jeff Frolio died last night at an area hospital. Frolio was apparently crossing the intersection to retrieve a tape from his car when he was hit by oncoming traffic. The driver who hit Frolio didn't realize she hit someone until she looked in her rear-view mirror. Police say she wasn't drinking or speeding. Frolio was covering the story of two teens who were killed at that intersection. The speed limit of the highway is 60 miles an hour. The intersection is located on a hilltop and is heavily traveled. Frolio was chosen as the Nebraska Television Photographer of the Year twice in his career.
