"It's unclear whether he'll be sighted with anything."

SpellCheck is *not* a substitute for a live editor.

So they're say he's blind. Accounts for the whole mishap.

No wonder he crashed.  Who can see with that huge chyron blocking his vision?

The car owner's insurance company will probably send out a clams adjuster.

Depending on the charges it could end up in small clams court.

Pleading guilt would at least show he's not being shellfish.

I guess he didn't sea the car. He didn't even have time to squid to a stop.

"Matt was riding a mini bike" - he didn't lay (lie?) on the ground long enough to be a Matt

Clammed?

Clambered into? Climbed into?

Sometimes it is hard to tell the slang from the typos.

I want a definition of "to clam into" and an explanation of where and by who it is used.

This new verb might be a keeper. Farker Brothers and Sistern, make it so.

For some reason I am imagining a hamster on a bike.

It seems he was sighted real good if they have video of the incident.

As someone that grew up in Pismo Beach, I'm going to go with "clamming into" as my new thing.

How do you fark up an article that short with that many errors?

Oh, and "holiday lane" needs to be capitalized.

Then there's this:

"Matt was riding a mini bike going the wrong direction, then ran a red light, slammed right into a car."

Nice change of tenses mid-sentence, scribe. And, as the fellow said already, Holiday Lane should be capitalized.
Now I'm wondering why I paid any attention during English class. It all just seems a great big waste of time.

Clam? Sighted?

There's little chance this article met spellcheck.

That said, drivers need to be attentive for bicyclists. And bicyclists? Y'all need to be attentive for drivers - they can't see you most of the time. It's your ass on the line and frankly I wouldn't risk it.

I think we've all learned a new verb today. I think I'll go ahead and quahog it into the bin.

It passed spell check just fine. There were no words underlined with red squiggly lines.
That's where the proofreading ended however.

On a serious note, this is nothing new. Newspapers have done this for many years. Everything is written on an 8th grade level so the masses can understand it.

It's "CLAMMED," ya Philistines.

No conflict - they're born cool and then some asshole human farks them up and they eat someone 'cause now they're psycho.
