when english class fails

"Body Recovered From Lake In Germantown
A body has been recovered from a lake in Germantown after someone drove a car into it."

Did someone drive the car into the body, or the lake? We assume that someone drove the car into the lake, and that the body that was recovered is that of the person who drove the car into the lake, but we're not supposed to assume. The sentence should be clear and not vague and ambiguous.

Seriously. When you're the news, you NEED to be grammatically correct.

Set the example. People use you to learn english. Teach them properly.

That is all.

Clearly, someone drove into the lake and hit the body.

That hasn't happened to you?
