Other Accident Story
I chose an article on a woman who ran a red light and subsequently died. There wasn't any fluff in this article. This let it be short, sour, and to the point. Even the quote, "Deborah Anne Greer, 36, died after a large utility truck smasehed into her passenger car at 9:23 a.m., Pena said." explains key elements of the article. This article was also short because car accidents are a fact of life, they happen every day. This article may be smalltown news but wouldn't appear on the frontpage of a large newspaper by any means. Only car accidents that have high casulty rates or long pile ups are going to make the frontpage most likely.
