The article seems to not have any self awareness about the truck having ďlost its loadĒ.

"The bizarre accident resulted in an awkward exchange between KWTVís anchor Lacey Lowery and the stationís helicopter pilot Jim Gardner."

Isn't this frowned upon during working hours? Did either of them contact HR?

I mean, Jim Gardner saying shit without thinking isn't exactly newsworthy at this point (he got into some hot water in 2020 over some gut-reaction-at-best/disinformation-at-worst remarks during the Oklahoma City BLM protests).

Despite claims to the contrary, the size of that spill did matter.

Michael R., who was in his front yard nearby at the time of the incident, said he heard a loud bang.

Debra H., whose vehicle was struck by the overturned truck, reportedly received minor injuries but is otherwise OK.  The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office said on partner station WXYZ:  "Make no mistake, [Debra's] life was saved because she was properly buckled up.  So let me just put in a plug for our department's ongoing special seatbelt enforcement program."

And this one is verbatim from the article itself:

If the cargo'd had a strap on, it would've been OK.

Reminds me of the time someone reported finding a finger in Wendy's chili.  The normally serious CBS Radio News hourly broadcast said that one party was "pointing the finger" of blame at the other, while the police were still looking for "tips".
