    I am happy that the persons who were in this accident are OK. I drive up and down this hill everyday, it could be tricky (although I'm not sure what happened to cause this accident).

    On another note, I implore every parent/guardian to buckle up your child/children when driving. I often see parents/guardians driving around well buckled in but your child/children (toddlers most of the times too) in the back free as a bird (sometimes head, hands and all manner of evil outside). Just think what would happen if an accident happens and they're not buckled in. Even if you can't afford a car seat, at least let them sit back in their seat until you get to your destination. Stay Safe Everyone!!

    What should be investigated is how does a Fairly New Vehicle loose power while in full acceleration....
    Was this the fault of the manufacturer of the Vehicle or the fault of the Driver which seems improbable .

      A 14 year old car isn't exactly "fairly new". Based on the underside its been leaking fluids for a while which could be from a lack of proper maintenance on the owner's part. So no, its not "improbable" that its the fault of the owner
