Help! Please clarify

Maybe it’s me, but this has just never sounded correct to me.

I was reading a headline that reads:

Car mows down pedestrians on Las Vegas Strip, killing 1 and injuring dozens more

Is a car capable of mowing anyone down or is it the driver that drove said car?

Should the headline read:

Driver mows down pedestrians on Las Vegas Strip, killing 1 and injuring dozens more.

-or-

Driver of car mows down pedestrians on Las Vegas Strip, killing 1 and injuring dozens more.

I have yet to grasp how an inanimate can perform an action. Even a lawnmower cannot perform its specified function without the aid of an animate object.

So, I’m slightly perplexed. I would greatly appreciate if there is anyone who is able to clear this up for me.

Thanks bunches
