The TV star was covering a blizzard for Today when en route from New York to Hartford, Connecticut, she was involved in a car crash that left her with mild concussion.

Opening up about the incident at the time to Zap2it, she said: "It was so unfortunate; we just spun out. It didn't help that we took the Merritt Parkway.

Dylan missed work at Weekend Today to recover, and was looked after by her husband, Brian Fichera.

"I've been covering storms for 10 years, and I'd never been stuck in one before," she said. "The concussion was just minor, but my husband forced me to rest and take it easy and lie around a lot more than I wanted to."

She added: "That's the best way to get through any head injury, though it was low-impact. I'm totally fine now."
