    “Juvenile transported to hospital after scooter broadsides car ” This is very misleading. The article states the driver of the car was a juvenile, not the scooter rider. Did the driver of the car go to the hospital? Was the scooter rider a juvenile? Did the scooter hit the car or the car hit the scooter? The driver of the car was cited. Very confusing for such a simple article.

      Bit of a reading comprehension problem there Vince? Or did they change the article after you posted your comment? Usually, if they change an article, Joyce will post a comment about it.
