During live broadcast: NBA reporter involved in car accident
As Slater drove his car, he spoke live with other experts about the much-publicized exchange between Spencer Dinwiddie and German NBA star Dennis Schröder in a session on Platform X.
As Slater is about to continue his evaluation of Spencer Dinwiddie, a loud bang is suddenly heard in the middle of his sentence. This was followed by the sound of brakes, desperate screams and another crash, leaving listeners concerned.
An expert at the meeting eventually asked about Slater's condition, to which he confirmed that he was fine.
“I'm doing well. I have to go now, guys.”
Slater then left the conversation, presumably to deal with the consequences of the accident.
