Yes, but, as I pointed-out above, whilst the specific cause was different some of the parallels are eerie - for eample, the concept of an out-of control car with a driver who is either dead or deeply unconcious is upsetting and potentially dangerous for othercompetitors, plus the concept of a driver suffering a fatal accident as a result of somone else's non-serious accident or breakdown is truly tragic.
That's true. The car driving on, while the driver himself - you know - is already beyond help, that's sad and eerie. The reason I reacted was spefically because all over this board the Surtees-accident is described as a 'freak-accident'. Which is not doing justice how dangerous driving still is. Everytime a car crashes and the parts of the car are flying around I think: 'Eeeeeeek!'
