Story structure

| No Comments

The reporter for the Star Tribune article Bayport man is latest Minnesota crash victim structured the story in the inverted pyramid style.

The story covered two recent crashes, and it could be split into two separate stories if needed.

The lead was a hard news lead, answering the who, what, where and when.

The story eventually explained more details, and linked the latest incident to another similar crash over the weekend.

This structure makes the facts known quickly what most people would want to know. It could have been done in a more narrative way, but the hard news style works here, too.
