By Ted Bell and Ralph Montano Sacramento Bee Staff Writers A well-known and accomplished Sacramento television news photographer died Sunday at UC Davis Medical Center from an injury he sustained last week while covering a story. Dick Terry, 52, was working for Channel 10 (KXTV) last Tuesday when he tripped over a fence and impaled his head on a fiberglass stake. The wound caused hemorrhaging in the brain that had kept him hospitalized since the accident. Terry had been a fixture at Channel 10 in Sacramento for 22 years and had captured some of Northern California’s most historic moments during that time, including views of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. “This has just devastated the newsroom,” KXTV reporter Jonathan Mumm said. “It’s just such a freaky thing, it’s hard to comprehend how it happened.”
