    Re: Mercedes test driver "pushing" car off in fatal accident

    Dr.Carerra,
    Why would I run AND break my neck?
    Why not just get out of the way?

    Re: Mercedes test driver "pushing" car off in fatal accident

    I think (some of) you guys are missing the point: the mercedes driver got so fast and close to the back of the other car, that the women thought he's going to hit her, so she panicked and swerwed off the road.
    I don't know the legal english (or german, for that matter) term for this, but he IS legally guilty of provoking that accident. If he had stayied at safe (and legal) distance from that car, the accident never had happened.
    It's just like when you're too close to the guy in front, he suddenly brakes, you can't brake, hit him and he dies.

    (the romanian term for this is "ucidere din culpa"-RC, do you know how to translate it in english?:D)

    Re: Mercedes test driver "pushing" car off in fatal accident

    There is no proof of how close he was to the other car.
    Could it be that it was her own fault.

    Re: Mercedes test driver "pushing" car off in fatal accident

    no, it can't be solely(*) her fault unless you take the whacky and downright 'sad' assumption that she suffered a heart attack or something self-inflicted that wasn't related to seeing a car, with headlights on, coming fast up her rear.

    (*) partial responsibility is possible.

    i think the other witnesses are proof enough.

    if he really drove like that everyday then there's one serious educational issue to get sorted out: taking due care.

    the way you (cf) describe your autobahn driving seems careful. i don't get that same feeling from what i've heard of the test driver.

    Re: Mercedes test driver "pushing" car off in fatal accident

    Ok, it's a quarter to 5 in the morning and my "Is it really appropriate to post this?" filter is disabled so morbid humor wins out...

    Any chance this Mercedes test driver is the guy driving the GT3 in the "Porsche GT3 video at Hockenheimring" thread?

    But i did some reading
    It's something like "manslaughter by negligence", and that's what he was convicted for.
    In my opinion the judge was right, his negligence led to TWO deaths.

    I'm glad for you being so fit and fearless. You're probably not what I would consider the average citizen on the street...Would your wife, grandmother, or children also 'just get out of the way'???
