What a crazy way to go. And 27. I look at my kids every day and thank God they're still here.

Ironically, he was a subject of a false death hoax rumor just two or three days BEFORE the actually accident....
as a result, the initial reports were discounted and disputed.

Also ironically, it sounds like he was killed because he left the parking brake off.

New news stories are saying the vehicle that killed him is/was under a global recall for rollaway risk. :eyepop:

Really sad. Did he have a family of his own? I've been under a car while it began to lower itself due to the rusty unibody bending around the jack holding it up. Being crushed/trapped by a car is a freaky way to go. Life is short.

Did you wake up this morning? Congratulations.
