The 24-year-old female driver said she lost control of the vehicle after the steering and brakes failed, according to police.

How many times in the history of automobiles have steering and brakes failed simultaeously without the car having just been in an accident? More likely the steerER and brakER failed to pay attention to what was going on.

Maybe the serpentine belt failed.

Could have lost a belt, or the engine could have died. Don’t know why they don’t teach people how to handle these things in driver’s ed...and people should really consider whether or not they are strong enough to handle a large vehicle (sans power assist) before driving it.

would be interesting to check the driver’s cell phone records at the time of the accident.
