    Atlantic City seems a bit far to use as an airport for the NYC area. It’s just about as far as Bradley International Airport in Hartford, CT!

  • Neither DNA nor the WSJ mention whether or not the truck had a driver.  In fact, the WSJ says the woman was struck by a “truck doing work,” as if it was Optimus Prime or a character from Thomas the Tank Engine. 

    Humanizing the vehicles involved in these incidents tends to dehumanize the victim.
