Those missing middle terms

From America's Newspapers, a fine example of typing without writing:

A Jefferson City teenager fell asleep at the wheel yesterday on Highway 63, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, resulting in major delays during afternoon traffic.

Darn teens! Always falling asleep and blocking traffic!

If you go for the second graf, you'll find out that he ran off the road. If you hang on for the second sentence of the second graf, you'll see that the vehicle overturned. And if you make it to the third graf, you'll note that he was seriously injured.
