The Washington Post said the Waukesha massacre was “caused by a SUV”

The Washington Post said the Waukesha massacre was “caused by a SUV.”

The original tweet has been deleted. This is the link where it originally was:

Fortunately, the internet archive has a copy of the tweet at this link:

https://web.archive.org/web/20211125033742/https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/1463686399123730443

The tweet says:

“Here’s what we know so far on the sequence of events that led to the Waukesha tragedy caused by a SUV.”

Here’s a screenshot taken from the archive:

Also, since “SUV” is pronounced as “ess yoo vee,” the correct article is “an,” not “a.” At least, that’s what I remember being taught when I was in elementary school back in the 1970s. Was my teacher wrong? Is my memory wrong? Have the rules of grammar been changed? Or is the Washington Post being run by people who don’t know the basic rules of grammar?
