One R32 less....
« on: October 24, 2017, 12:12:59 pm »
 Another tragic loss of life due to moronic behaviour.
Hope the R32 didn't belong to anyone here?

That's pretty bad. I imagine the R32 will handle like crap with 5 people in it.
Running form the cops is stupid and in this case deadly. The drive has put a huge emotional burden on himself for the rest of his life. Not to mention the families of those that were killed in the accident.

What a mess. The Stuff article said there were 5 in the car and both rear passengers died, which made no sense.

I dont think a R32 with 5 people in it could run from my Mum let alone the cops

It makes perfect sense - side impact at the rear door, direct trauma to those alongside it.
That writer is a damnwit who gets way too much coverage (any is too much, IMO) and the sooner the media stop referring to him the better!

These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)

I wonder how many in the rear were wearing seat belts?

Probably wouldn't have helped much with a side impact like that.

Why? They are designed to carry 5 people.
