I would object to a sentence of that

"Burke tore a
vertebral artery, which are
located in the neck and supply blood
to the brainstem — the back part of the brain which controls consciousness."

Would you consider that construction
perfectly ok, a colloquialism / grammatical shortcut, or would you consider
it wrong no matter what?



Just curious.
