    I just read this in yet another news article: "The suspect fled on foot."

    No he didn't. He ran away. No one talks like that except cops.

    And when someone is involved in an accident, newspapers always say the injured "was transported" to a hospital.

    "taken" couldn't be used?

    Funny. The big thing I learned was that there are no "accidents" only crashes. Like there are no "murders" until charges are filed - they're all homocides.

    We always laughed about "rushed to a nearby hospital."
    Somebody would always say, "The injured person was casually taken to a hospital far far away."
