TV Mobster Involved in Verb Disagreement: No Injuries Reported

From a wire service story today about a traffic accident involving "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini:
Neither the actor nor the suspected drunk driver who collided with him were hurt in the crash.
Interesting. When I first noticed this story online this morning it said "the suspected drunk driver who collided into him..." When I went back to grab the sentence for this posting, I noticed they fixed that bit of awkwardness, but they left the incorrect verb lying there at the scene of the accident. It should say that neither driver was hurt in the crash.
