Print vs. online, continued

From the Charleston Daily Mail, comes this news: “Newspaper bundles jammed into a pickup truck probably saved the life of a carrier involved in a head-on collision that proved fatal for the other driver, authorities said.” My observant friend, Jimmy Guterman, suggests this means print newspapers are, indeed, good for something we perhaps haven’t considered. My response, Jimmy: if the physical newspapers are to be credited with saving the driver’s life, then can one also argue that the need to deliver those physical newspapers at 3:15 a.m. contributed to the death of the other driver?
