Default Another Fatal Crash in the Bay Area, Reported as CGT

Hi,

Got this off the local paper and 6speed.

http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=78486

Really sad news. Reported to be two 26 years old in a black Porsche (some say it's a CGT) crashed right in my backyard in Los Altos Hills. So so sad. I have no further details other than this. Hope it is not some one we know in the Bay Area.

Loosing Luis is already a shock. This is just heart-breaking.

Folks, please be safe out there.

Just read that over there too Pong ... sad indeed.

Besides Luis and these 2 guys ... there was a Ferrari driver who died the same day as Luis IIRC.

IMHO ... 26 is too young for a CGT. I wonder if these guys had ANY DE experience?

I wish I did not have to hear of stories like this.

CP, Can you copy paste the story over to me since I'm temporarily banned from that other forum?

Here you go.

got this off the san franicsco chronicle website:

"In Los Altos Hills, two men died when their Porsche ran off Interstate 280 and hit a tree about 2:50 a.m. today, the CHP said. The driver, a 26-year-old Fremont man, went off a curve while southbound near El Monte Road. He and his passenger, a 26-year-old San Jose man, died."

Hope they are not soneone you know.

No ID's disclosed yet... I don't know any P-car comrades personally in NoCal other than Senor Pong, but I'm so saddened by the events of the last week....

Man, so sad. RIP to those who have fallen.

All cars are dangerous, but our cars are especially dangerous with all the power they have. We all need to be careful.

I know it's petty for that other forum to ban me, but it is their LAW. I was gonna start a thread over here to vent about my experience but decided not to. I'd rather read better things than a bash thread myself.

Back to the topic here, is it confirmed that it was a CGT?

Our cars are no more dangerous than a mini-van. In actual fact, they're safer because you can do more to avoid an accident. The person behind the wheel can make it dangerous when, say, they want to explore the limits of a CGT's handling on the street without knowing their limitations.

Judging by the fact that it was so early in the morning, I'd say it's a safe bet they were joyriding. So they had enough common sense to do it when few others were on the road. RIP.

Yeah, I'm speculating. Yeah, not all the facts are in. But let's forget all that for a second - Nobody takes a passenger out in their CGT at 2 in the morning to "just cruise." Be careful out there!
