Car vs. bus stop crashes in Mountain View are so scary. Really glad no one was killed this time.

If a driver is passed out and crashes into a tree, does it make any sound?

Thank God she wasn't driving a Mercedes. They explode and throw teir engines and transmissions over vast distances when they explode. Just Google "michael hastings death" and find out.

Old Ben: Could you be more specific with your reference? I Googled "michael hastings death" and selected two news stories (Huffington Post and Fox News). Both stories said he was thought to be traveling at a high speed when he hit a tree and the car burst into flames. Nothing about exploding or throwing "engines and transmissions over vast distances".
