Sure, fully agree. As above, the usual excuse given is implication of blame. (I use "excuse", not "reason", explicitly, because I suspect it's bullshit, whether known or simply a result of FUD.)

It's language evolving, as signalled by the fact that dictionaries have been updated to reflect the common usage. The evolution may have been born of misuse, but we're past that now. (I'm sympathetic—I resent the misuse of "trolling", for instance—but language is pure democracy.)

One car went to mow, went to mow the victims. One car and its anonymous passive occupant, went to mow the victims. Two cars went to mow…

Driver entirely absent other than being "caught up in the crash" just like the other victims.
