You also used the word victim in your title as click bait.

Since you aren't familiar with what that word means I've decided to post it here for you:


vic·tim
ˈviktəm/Submit
noun
a person harmed, injured, or killed as a result of a crime, accident, or other event or action.


Your source story does not ONCE use the word victim. Perhaps you need to apologize to the poster you attempted to berate when you are so obviously wrong.

No, I didn't. The original title was too long and I got an ATS error that said I needed to shorten my title. Victim, of an accident, is an appropriate term in light of the circumstances. If you want to imply that she was victimized again by the tow truck driver, I won't disagree, but that's not what the title implies.


vic·tim ˈviktəm/Submit noun
a person harmed, injured, or killed as a result of a crime, accident, or other event or action.

You just doubled down on not knowing what victim means? Seriously? Read the first part of that definition.


a person harmed, injured, or killed


Context is your friend.

This woman was not a victim. She was involved in an accident yes, but she was without injury. You chose a bad word to shorten the title.

The "victim" was the car, then. You happy now? And the "victim" - her car - was, in fact, left on the side of the road by the tow-truck dumbass who blamed God for his dickishness.

harm härm/;

damage the health of. "smoking when pregnant can harm your baby"

have an adverse effect on.
"this could harm his Olympic prospects"


Give it up man. The woman was the victim of an automobile accident. She got hit by a tractor trailer. Her car was disabled which had an adverse effect on her. PERIOD!

Besides, just because an ambulance wasn't dispatched, that doesn't mean she didn't suffer any injury.

Dude, you are making yourself look worse. You are using it in the wrong context in your example. Was the person harmed? No, his OLYMPIC PROSPECTS were. No damage was done to the person. You use the word on purpose because it has a negative connotation and you didn't know the definition of it. It's fine, you were wrong. It happens. Don't make yourself look dense because of it.

Now you don't know what an adverse effect is:



adverse effect


Definition
Abnormal, harmful, or undesirable effect on an organism that causes anatomical or functional damage, irreversible physical changes, or increases the susceptibility to other biological, chemical, or environmental stresses.

ad·verse
adˈvərs,ˈadˌvərs/Submit
adjective
preventing success or development; harmful; unfavorable.


Edit: And no she was NOT a victim in an automobile accident, because she wasn't injured.

In his quote. No person was harmed. Olympic Prospects were.

I just edited in the definition of an adverse effect for both of you since you seem confused.

As far as the word harm:


harm
härm/Submit
noun
1.
physical injury, especially that which is deliberately inflicted.


Injury is required.

So harm is only a physical injury.

That's your stance?

The woman had Chrons.

Stress affects the physical resulting in harm.

No, the woman had chronic fatigue syndrome, not Chrons. Those are two completely and totally different things. People with Chrons would proably go ballistic for people confusing the two.

She was without injury, hence she was not a victim. She was involved in an accident. Her car was the victim. So the only victim left behind by the Tow Truck driver was the car.

McWade, 25, has psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and early-stage Crohns, which she said made sitting on the side of the road without a restroom nearby"terrifying". She is legally disabled and says the handicapped placard was hanging on her mirror when Shupe arrived.

She was not injured, she was not a victim. Win used the wrong word.

"Helpless Woman" would have been better than "Victim" because the word Victim does not fit in the context of this story.

And she was only able to prove to HufPo that she had CFS with the medication for it and the disability tag.

There is no medication for Chrons.
