Pretty heartless to label a man dead due to a mechanical issue ?crazy?.
the original story had him "injured" not deceased (story was updated) but having said that even what sort of mechanical issue Brakes? With the number of over loaded units i see everyday and i drive 60,000 miles a year or more for business plus another 10-15,000 for pleasure pulling my 5er "Crazies" may not be a wrong term - however my sympathies to the innocent victims

Well even overload.  I don't see evidence of that (Oh perhaps a couple hundred pounds but well within "Wiggle room" I can think of two failures that miight cause that. Throttle return spring. not all  know how to deal with that. and brake failure. again there is a way to deal with that. if you think fast enough. Darn few do,  Since they said "Mechanical failure" that means it was not a driver mistake.
