Headline about semi-truck roll needs specificity

Editor,

Great photo of the semitrailer in the Weber River. One suggestion: take a bit more care in choosing banner headlines (Dec. 7, ”Driver nods, rolls semi into river”)

“Driver nods...” gives readers the impression the truck driver lowered his head (as if he was “nodding” to someone); as opposed to “dozes” (as in, asleep at the wheel).
