In truth, my obsession is past. I've hardly thought about Liam Lawlor or Julia Kushnir the past few days. The Sunday Times provided a few new facts, some of which contradict those facts we previously 'knew'. Now the story is that Kushnir was in the front seat and Lawlor in the back. The Sunday Times also tells us that the car was traveling at 120Km/h (around 70MPH) when it "smashed sideways into a lamp post". This sideways crash explains [a] why Kushnir was unhurt (the impact was on the other side of the car) and [b] why the airbags didn't inflate. Reading this article it was almost like someone was reading my questions and answering them for me.
Anyway, I think if you weren't sold at all by the official word regarding last week's crash, etc. I see little in this article that will put your suspicions to rest. This - "there were no tyre skid marks, indicating the car did not slow down before the impact" - alone will make people wonder. Was it murder? And, even if the brakes completely failed, if the driver had taken his foot off the gas pedal wouldn't that have ensured that the car would have slowed well below the 120 Km/h before impact? Wouldn't traveling sideways at that speed have left skid marks anyway?
