False, there were NOT several hundred feet of skidmarks. There were actually almost NO skidmarks.

How could they have crashed without skidding?

One can crash without skidding if one thinks he can drive out of the situation and never mashes the brake or slides the car sideways.

A more complete question is "how could they have crashed without skidding AND still leave the hood mostly unbent?"

Maybe they were going SO fast that when they crested the hill, a gust of wind came and made the car go flying through the air.

A women was in a coma; she had been in it for months. Nurses were in her room giving her a sponge bath. One of them was washing her private area and noticed that there was a slight response on the monitor when she touched her.

They tried it again and sure enough there was definite movement. They went to her husband and explained what happened, telling him, "As crazy as this sounds, maybe a little oral sex will do the trick and bring her out of the coma."

The husband was skeptical, but they assured him that they'd close the curtains for privacy. The husband finally agreed and went into his wife's room.

After a few minutes the woman's monitor flat lined, no pulse, no heart rate. The nurses run back into the room. "What happened!?" they cried. The husband said, "I'm not sure - I think maybe she choked."

The cause of the fiery crash that killed actor Paul Walker and former racing driver Roger Rodas was “unsafe speed for the roadway conditions,” a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department commander said Tuesday.

The results of a traffic collision investigation into the Nov. 30, 2013, crash were set to be released at an evening news conference.

The 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that Rodas was driving was going between 80 and 93 mph at the time of the crash, according to a sheriff’s news release.

The posted speed limit at the site of the Santa Clarita crash (map) was 45 mph.

“Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions,” said Cmdr. Mike Parker of the sheriff’s North Patrol Division said in the release.

The car hit a power pole and several trees and burst into flames, bringing people running to the scene. It was totaled and nearly split in half, authorities said.

Walker, 40, and Rodas, 38, were found dead in a “pugilistic stance,” an autopsy report released in January stated. There was no evidence of drugs or alcohol in either man’s system, according to a coroner’s report. The autopsy reports for both men stated that the Porsche had been traveling at more than 100 mph before it crashed.

The crash generated intense interest from fans of Walker’s appearances in the racing movie series the “Fast & Furious.”

An examination of the wreckage and the vehicle’s history showed “no pre-existing conditions that would have caused this collision,” the sheriff’s news release stated, noting the tires were more than nine years old.

“During the examination, it was determined that an aftermarket exhaust system had been installed which would have increased the engine’s horsepower,” Parker said.

Both men wore seat belts, and air bags inflated properly on both sides, the release stated.

So the 9 year old tires had nothing to do with the car losing grip? Also, who the hell can afford this car but not afford new tires for it?

And and aftermarket exhaust have this car SO much power it was uncontrollable? Woah this Borla adds 10hp to the 500 gotta be careful!
