Sure, anytime a wire is "shorted" to ground, or even another wire, issues will occur. But a pinched wire is not a shorted wire. If a pinch is so bad that is breaks the wire or insulation, then we have a broken or possibly shorted wire. Apologies folks. I'm an old Radar technician and worked with coaxial cables and transmission lines. There is a bend radius for cables after which they would be considered pinched. I also laugh when the fault comes back after a tech found a "pinched wire" causing the issues. A broken or shorted wire would have been picked up by the troubleshooting continuity checks. The system would likely not pass a functional after service either.
