Pedestrian to car interface on London Circuit of a Saturday night

By johnboy 21 July 2013 21

An 18-year-old Curtin woman has been taken to The Canberra Hospital after colliding with a vehicle in Civic last night.

About 11.25pm last night (Saturday, July 21) the woman was running east bound along London Circuit and crossed Northbourne Avenue where she was struck by a Hyundai Sonata sedan travelling north.

The woman sustained a number of injuries and was taken to The Canberra Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
The driver of the vehicle was taken to The Canberra Hospital as a precaution.

ACT Policing urge anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

why is that the pedestrian “collided” with the car? Surely it was the other way round?

Does really matter how the article was written? Fair dinkum.

To students of grammar, yes. Most clauses will contain participants – the subject and object. The subject enacts the verb contained in the clause, while the object has the verb done to them or is acted upon by the subject.

“The pedestrian collide with the car” has a different meaning to “the car collided with the pedestrian.” If we are to consider the act of pedestrian and car colliding as a negative one, who/what is the subject of the sentence describing the collision is indeed important, as blame for this incident is now apportioned.

Of course, before an investigation into the collision is completed by the police, the neutral way to report on this would have been to say that there was a collision between a car and pedestrian. Considering this statement was given mere hours after the collision, I’m going to guess the investigation into it was not complete.
