A WNBC headline: Man In Wheelchair Struck, Killed By SUV In Bronx

Actually, he was killed by the driver of the SUV, wasn’t he?

The story continues:

Police said 41-year-old Juan Jimenez was crossing Broadway near 230th Street at about 5:44 p.m. when a late model black Mitsubishi SUV hit him and pinned him under the vehicle with the wheelchair.

The vehicle then fled the scene, leaving Jimenez in the street.

The vehicle fled the scene? This anti-SUV bias is getting a little ridiculous, isn’t it?

Update: Reader/sometime blogger Alex Nunez sends the following related story and comment…

The way these attorneys general carry on, you’d think that all automobile accidents are caused by SUV drivers. Ridiculous. This is one of the biggest wastes of $27 million I’ve ever heard of.

Maybe the AGs will be handing out these stickers as part of their campaign. (Thanks for the tip, Gawker. Is it a slow news gossip/party/snark day over in Gawker Media land or what?)
