Deploying its trademark abundance of caution, the New York Post carefully couched a key detail about a woman who was seriously injured when she fell out of a cab's window after the driver sped off when she tried to jump through it. "The woman may have been intoxicated as she approached several cabs looking for a ride at around midnight," the paper reported. She may have been, but the Post isn't the kind of news operation to jump to conclusions about facts, so we'll just have to wait for confirmation on that one.
