You can’t correctly identify a man as a man when you are provided the correct gender listing on the accident report all the time…can you? And in such a unique situation…but still…all right, I’m giving it up. We made a whoopsie.

Claire E. Warner, 60, of Solon, better known as Gene Warner — father of Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner — was driving north on Sandy Beach Road in Shueyville on April 16 when Marvin Gregor attempted to turn in front of him. Their pickups hit head-on. Gregor, 88, was transferred to Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids, where he died from complications of his injuries Tuesday. Warner was not injured.

We originally identified Claire with a “she” pronoun. A relative pointed out our error to us. All we can say is sorry, man. And write a correction in the paper.
