Someone at the Sun-Sentinel needs a remedial headline writing class. Some news from Fort Lauderdale.
Vehicle kills woman using cell phone at wrecked car on I-95 in LauderdaleHave you ever read a more convoluted headline? The word vehicle is used instead of SUV too. The South Florida MSM motto- If you think you've seen stupid, think again!

FORT LAUDERDALE – A 24-year-old Miramar resident was killed on Interstate 95 early Wednesday while she stood next to her disabled car to use a cell phone, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. on southbound I-95 about a quarter-mile south of Sunrise Boulevard when Zavia Anike Golding's 1999 Toyota Corolla collided with another vehicle. The wrecked Toyota ended up impeding the left center lane, troopers said.
Several minutes passed when Golding apparently decided to use her cell phone while standing next to the disabled Toyota in the roadway.
At the same time, a 2000 Toyota Rav approached the area. The driver, Ignacio P. Sierra, 58, of Pembroke Pines, was unable to take evasive action and the front of Rav collided with Golding, who died at the scene, troopers said. Sierra was treated for minor injuries at Broward General Medical Center.
