Shephard Smith was visibly upset with the display after repeatedly telling the video switcher to “Get off” and switch away from the scene.

After inadvertently airing live coverage of a car chase that ended with a man’s suicide, Shepard Smith of Fox News has issued an apology to viewers of his show. The incident occurred as the cable network carried a live feed of a man fleeing police on the interstate west of Phoenix.
