    It’s maddening how neither the headline nor the introductory sentence mention the driver in the story about the 7-year-old boy getting hit (in both the ABC and SFGate versions). The headlines–

    Vehicle strikes boy on bicycle in Berkeley

    7-year-old Boy Riding Bicycle Struck, Injured by SUV in Berkeley

    Is this a driverless vehicle? How absurd would it be if these read–

    Vehicle strikes bicycle in Berkeley

    Red Bicycle Struck, Damaged by SUV in Berkeley
