    Streetsblog title:  “Driver Hits Man Crossing Street in South San Francisco”

    Examiner title: “Jaywalker struck, injured by car in South San Francisco”

    Minor difference, until you read the article and see that jaywalker was dressed in dark clothing and crossed the 200 block of Grand Avenue where there’s even a midblock crosswalk and bulb-outs.  Lucky to walk away with just a broken arm.

    Let us not forget that “jaywalking” is a relatively new concept, only necessary to facilitate the free-flow of high volumes of fast auto traffic. I envision streets where one could cross anywhere. But, it’s just a dream for now…

    Here, yea, should’ve used the crosswalk. What I’m more concerned about is anonymous language. “Jaywalker” hit by “car”. Cars don’t hit things, people do. And is the jaywalker some new type of human I’m not familiar with? But there’s only so far you can get without getting too cumbersome with writing.
