Why? It's a simple statement of fact, it's not an editorial comment. I frequently read about Auto accidents where they mention that driver was ejected and wasn't wearing a seatbelt. I don't see the difference. Immediately after an accident there are precious few known facts available for the reporter to use so I can't blame them for using what they can.
