Geez. Just because you read something "scary" doesn't mean you suddenly have to be so scared, you go hide in a closet all day.
Scary stuff is a part of life and if women weren't able to face "scary" stuff on a day to day basis, none of us would ever leave our homes.
Crossing a road with lots of traffic is dangerous too.
And yeah, ugly car accidents DO happen and are on the news regularly.
Do I stop crossing roads or driving my car because of either? No.
Do I wear a seatbelt and have an airbag?
Because, thanks to the news and the information, I know that doing without either can be dangerous, so I adapt.
