  1. Racers use this straight away for hitting top speed but anyone who has driven this part of the road knows these are the worst roads around. Pot holes the size of sink holes. Hitting a pot hole at excessive speeds easily could have caused this. This is also within 100 yards of where a young man crashed his motorcycle 3-4 years ago into the bus stop. Young kids + fast vehicles + horrendous road conditions are a recipe for disaster.

  2. A purported eyewitness account is in the comments section of the Daily Nexus’ story. Most of the conjecture here on Edhat is *inconsistent* with that account. Tread carefully, there are relatives posting @Daily Nexus.

  3. UC need to ban students from owning assault cars..
    Or limit students to cars with 100 hp. This never happened in VW Bug days when
    they had 45 hp engines.
    But it should be easy to require students to take a Car Driving course. ie Dumb Bell
    Drivers Ed?
    Or ban cars from Campus and IV. Park and ride bikes? Take the bus.
    ie “Rapid” Transit?
    And at least fix the pot holes. Should be a POT HOLE HOTLINE number.
    But perhaps they need to use more Roundabouts. Traffic Circles. Cities like LB
    even have them in old neighborhoods. Imagine SB with no 4 way stops!! Just plant
    a tree in center of intersections.
    Name them after victims of city planners.

  4. do yourself a favor, from someone who reconstructed accidents for a living. dont make assumptions without actually seeing the scene. And honestly, you dont want these nightmares trying to “ponder’ what happened
