Yes, Steven, I agree with you.  I saw the article too.

Then, there's the "conspiracy theories" about the accident.  Have you  
heard those?

Some feel she hit the Corvair on purpose.  Something about the guy who  
was driving, who she killed, was an ex-boyfriend who she was still  
angry at.  I think there's little chance it's true.
