    But it does sound like the makings of a good conspiracy.

    But if he worked with the CIA, someone could have sabotaged the car to get revenge.

    I doubt it...that limo didn't even pass inspection...shouldn't have been in use.

    The one woman texted someone from the limo saying what a piece of crap it was.

    Driver wasn't licensed to drive a limo that big and that intersection was a known hotspot for accidents.

    Just a terrible but avoidable accident if rules had been followed....

    The only thing that raises suspicions for me is the fact that EVERYONE in the limo died. That just seems unusual. I don't ever recall everyone in a large vehicle dying unless they went over a cliff or something. This was a large limo going 60 mph that hit a light pole killing everyone inside. In high school, I was riding in an old station wagon that was probably going over 60, flipped end-over-end six times according to witnesses, took out TWO utility poles, and no one inside (6 of us) was seriously injured. No seat belts in those days and we bounced around inside the car like balls. That was just an old stationwagon.

    It does seem really strange that everyone apparently was killed at the scene, especially with such a large vehicle and so many passengers.
    Thus far, there does not seem to be anyone in the limo who might have been targeted, although one of the passengers was working at the senators office.
    Probably, if there was something else going on besides just a terrible accident, then the news will be coming out in the next few days. Here is the news article that talks about the passengers in the car.
    Except for the limo company owner, who is apparently overseas somewhere, I didn’t see anything that seemed suspicious with the passengers, at least at this point in time.

    I heard that it had failed the vehicle inspection.

    And then there is the fact that two pedestrians died too and the limo hit a car that thankfully no one was in. Did the limo go out of its path to hit the pedestrians and the parked car (thinking maybe people were in it too)...

    This does not sound or look like a simple accident to me.

    The pedestrians were killed by the unoccupied car that was hit by the limo.

    If they were targeted...that sure is a round about way of doing it.

    It wasn't a simple accident...but I doubt it was a "hit".

    I don't think the passengers were wearing safety belts but I'm not sure.

    Since everyone died...what really happened will be hard to know for sure. Maybe some to those passengers recorded things on their cell phones that will help solve what really happened. It's tragic no matter what the real story is.

    One passenger texted an aunt I think 20 mins before the crash saying that the limo was in terrible shape or something similar.

    It's not hard to understand an accident there....there have been many there...trucks have been banned from driving that road.

    The residents called it an accident hotspot....the limo shouldn't even have been in service, failing an inspection.

    I don't see why an accident is so hard to believe....

    Do limo's even have seat belts for the passengers? I wouldn't think so. Limo's, like this one, are noted as "party vehicles". Certain things aren't being told about what was going on inside the limo, where the passengers were.
