We investigators call this "conclusionary language."
I clicked this link thinking I was going to read a story about a guy who literally got chased down in an attempt to run him over.
A cager did not try to run your friend over. An inattentive cager ALMOST hit your friend, but it does not sound like it was at all intentional, as your title suggests. I mean, if the cager TRIED, he sure did a half-as*ed attempt, thats for sure...
Glad he wasnt run over though!!
