6 ABC anchor/reporter Lisa Thomas-Laury says she was lucky to escape injury in a car accident Friday in Ardmore. Thomas-Laury's cream-colored Porsche Cayenne SUV was struck by another car near County Line and Roberts roads. She was thankful that her airbag deployed and that she was wearing a seat belt, the veteran broadcaster told us when we contacted her after hearing of the accident. "It looks worse than it is," she said about a bruise on her head. She said a first-responder told her she would have been much worse off if she hadn't been driving an SUV. She was taken to Paoli Memorial Hospital in a neck brace.

" Louis Perpetua, 55, using a racial epithet repeatedly, accused Thomas-Laury of stalking and harassing him for four years "in an effort to get me to give her an interview and co-write a book about O.J. Simpson.
