    So the front of the car, which had just illegally run a stop sign AND an overhead flashing red light, despite the presence of a large sign stating that "Cross Traffic Does Not Stop", was "struck" by the side of the SUV travelling on M-57, a highway with no stop sign, no flashing red light, no large yellow sign warning that “Cross Traffic Is about to Run Its Stop Sign & Plow into the Side of Your Car”? And the driver of the car assumed there was a four-way stop but proceeded through the intersection anyway, without stopping? This leads one to assume that a close friend or family member of the culprit who caused this collision is on Fox17’s Assignment Desk.

    Furthermore, is the person who scribbled this piece a doctor? No? Then how would he or she know whether the injuries of the driver of the SUV were life-threatening? Because the scribbler (not a journalist by any stretch of the imagination!) certainly made no investigation into the facts. Aero Med and similar do not get called out without good reason. Scribbler, get your facts straight! And while you are at it, learn the difference between "their" and "there". And how to use hyphens, auxillary verbs, common sense, and a clock. This assignment gets an “F”.
