Two-door sedans, four-door coupes, and Civic-sized Accords.

The news channel said they had a story of a Waymo-involved accident after the commercial break, so I immediately found this story: Google Minivan In 'Autonomous Mode' Involved In Crash In Arizona

Apparently an unknown car flew from a side street in front of a Civic coupe, which swerved into a slow-moving Waymo Pacifica. Then the people whose one job is to report facts and explain simple facts to simpler folks called a coup a sedan and the car fans made fun of that, and then called the Civic an Accord.

I hope the Waymo got a picture of the plates of the third vehicle because whoever ran that stop sign and cut off the Civic decides to go to bed without supper.

I expect mainstream media to deliberately mislead me. I expect local news to mislead me out of sheer ignorance.

Rarely is swerving the better option than braking, as we see here. If a collision is unavoidable, make the responsible sob be part of the mess.
