Unforeseen Consequences

Nobody asked but …

There is a word for people who do not read: Illiterate. There is a word for people who are challenged by quantitative concepts: Innumerate. What would be the word for those swoggled by unforeseen consequences? Inconsequential? I read with satisfaction today that a “self-driving” car cracked up in Las Vegas within an hour of its launch. What could go wrong?
