She handled that quite well. Most people would panic. And now she is very famous so it worked out just fine for her.

Did driver stop? Identified?
yes...they actually talked on live TV for a bit. Tori kind of apologized and the driver did too. The snow, rain and flashing lights blinded the driver and the crew was set up in an OK but dangerous position. After stopping and exchanging pleasantries, and Tori saying she was just fine, the driver drove off.

I always wondered at what point she realized what she had said? It could be that it was afterwards or maybe in the middle of it and she just poker faced it to get off the air with as little disruption as possible
