Poor headline. This is a very sad incident, but it is also rare (unlike KC shootings).

The world is often dangerous, and we don't love in cocoons.

Complete safety is impossible, so taking a very unusual event to suggest imminent danger is not justified.

The headline is in question form, but, yeah, appears as purposefully tricky wording. That's TKC!

This brings thought of that suicidal, impaired driving teen, Albers. Dang. He could have been a cause of a horrible incident like this, or more deaths, if he'd continued on driving past his driveway.

Let’s see what the police report when released says. If it was a medical problem, then it could have happened anywhere.
