89 Year Old Man Injured 27 People With His Car!

Why isn't the Sun Herald calling for more restrictions against senior citizens driving, after all older drivers have higher rates of fatal crashes than all but the youngest drivers, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. "Fragility" starts as early as age 60, the institute's report on 2004 fatalities says. By 75, older drivers are "markedly overinvolved in crashes."

I for one am tired of the Sun Herald's bias reporting against teen drivers. If a teen had been involved their age would have been blaring in the headlines, instead the article about the 89 year old man injuring 27 pedestrians bore the innocuous headline Car strikes Conn. festival crowd; 27 hurt
