TOWSON, Md. (AP) — When a truck crashed into WMAR-TV, dozens of employees fled. One remained behind, feeding information to police.

Nic Hall has worked for the Baltimore-area ABC affiliate, owned by E.W. Scripps Co., for two weeks. In an interview Tuesday on the station’s evening newscast, he said a co-worker left to make copies but never came back. Then he heard from another employee, working off-site, who asked why he was still in the office. That’s when he learned a man rammed the truck into the lobby.

Hall connected with Baltimore County police and was on the phone for the next 3½ hours “letting them know the lay of the land.” He’s a reserve Marine, and talked with a fellow Marine among the responding officers. A SWAT team walked him outside to safety.

The Utah woman accused of dumping her day-old baby in a neighbor's trash can told police she was afraid to tell her parents about the pregnancy and hoped the newborn's death would solve her problems. The newborn baby girl is expected to be in critical condition for several days. (AP Photo/Salt Lake County Sheriff)
