Wellington Officials Furious Over Today Show Using City as Location for Story on Car Surfing
the Mall at Wellington Green.
Wellington city leaders say the live segment unfairly labeled Wellington as the capital of car surfing. Councilwoman Anne Gerwig told the Town-Crier: "I didn't appreciate that negative outlook on us, because we aren't that kind of community. The implication is clear from watching it. It's implying that it's here, and it's not."
Lauer was probably using the Palm Beach County city to highlight the two Central Florida teens recentlykilled
in a crash
involving car surfing last week, when the driver lost control and rolled the vehicle, causing it to burst into flames.
