    Kinda scary, I'd seen the car several times while on campus and I'd hoped to be on a similar team when it came time for my senior design project.

    Formula, the SAE itself has showed a lot of support. I saw it on breaking news saying it might have been a local school van but no specifics. It's kind of unfolded over the last week from there.

    Have you heard anything on what caused the accident?

    It's a sad deal. I feel for their families.

    The van that was towing the trailer started to fishtail for reasons unknown, the driver lost it, crossed the median, and the van was hit by two semi's. I would say improper loading of the trailer, but they were already in Michigan (a good haul from here) when it happened, so one would guess that it would have happened earlier if it were to happen. I don't think anyone knows or is placing any of the blame on the driver though.
