polyglot conspiracy

This seems like one of those times where the anchor anticipated the interviewee to say something other than what they said and responded according to that, instead of to what they actually said. He probably thought the policeman would say something to the effect of "He doesn't seem to be hurt" or "I guess that ends the chase." ???

The Tensor

This is just the sort of thing you'd expect in a state whose governor is the Butcher of Bakersfield.

I agree with Polyglot, but I think what the anchor heard was "He might not have been hurt," and answered "I hope so" to agree, as if he had said, "I hope that's true."

At least I hope so.
