How do you OVERROAD a veto? By UPS, perhaps?

Here is a usage glitch I've never come across:

In fact, they overroad then-Gov. Bob Riley's veto, preserving their 61 percent increase in compensation.

Whoops! What the OUR VIEWS page of The Birmingham News meant to use in their editorial about state government budget woes was the word OVERRODE (past tense of RIDE).  ROAD, of course, is a noun that does not fit this situation.  The sentence should read as follows:

In fact, they overrode then-Gov. Bob Riley's veto, preserving their 61 percent increase in compensation.
