Re: [DML] The COMPLETE DeLorean crash test videos, report and more.



I think you missed the point.  The question was has anyone died IN a DeLorean, 
not because they got hit by one.

Yes... there was a Death caused by a Delorean...But it was because of a safety 
issue with a Delorean

I bought  THE delorean that caused the safety recall for the ball joints (as a 
parts car)

It caused a innocent death of a young lady..when that Delorean had a Ball joint 
failure at High speed and  lost control and went into the oncoming lanes on the 
Massachusetts Turnpike causing the Delorean to crash into a Toyota and killing 
the young lady.I was not there I did a investigation on that delorean and got 
first hand info from the Insurance Company who did the pay out..as I wanted to 
originally fix it since it only had 2000 original miles when I got it in 1983.

The dash vin plate was destroyed by the Ins.Company and it was designated as a 
car to be destroyed or used as a parts car only...the title was Destroyed..even 
tho this was a NEW Delorean...since the ins. company paid out millions to the 
Heirs of the young lady and because of the investigation on the ball joint 
failure.... It was determined that this car was too risky to be put back on the 
road..I am assuming somewhere at DMC there is or there was a file on this 
case/car...since this was a BRAND NEW Delorean at the time of the ball joint 
failure..(it was titled for less than a month from a DMC dealership)

I am Not sure on the outcome of the driver of the Delorean or of his or her 
passenger(if any)but like most head-on crashes..the driver who instigates it 
usually survives it..or maybe not..I never found out.
