    Once again we see sensational headlines. The difference between "killed" and "dies" suggests violence as opposed to an accident. The headline is written in a way that suggests that someone caused the death rather than the person dying in an accident. The word "killed" in this context may be grammatically and factually correct, but it still misleads the reader.
