No it didn’t

There is a glaring error in this statement.

A 34-year-old man died after an Amtrak train crashed into his car early this morning.

The train did not “crash into his car.” Trains are unable to steer. They follow those little metal rails, never deviating from their assigned paths for any reason. The guy died because he drove his car around the crossing guard into the path of an oncoming train.

The train didn’t crash into him. He crashed into the train.

One response to “No it didn’t

  1. That would require the media to assign the blame to the individual and not an inanimate object in this case the train. If they did that the headline would be idiot died.
