Just like no follow up on Leutenant (sp) Quarles Harris, Nate Spencer, Larry Bland, Donald Young, etc.
Sort of like the FBI denied knowing anything about the Boston Bombers until that cat was let out of the bag.
IOW, we already have driverless cars.
That’s a good question.
I agree on “both”
a hack to make the car speed despite efforts to stop/slow down
& also hide a bomb in the undercarriage....
cellphone control of hack & detonator?
Considering how many people hold that the Israelis took over control of the Boeing 767s on 911 and guided them remotely into the twin towers, there is a certain irony in the source of this contention.
I would take this article a bit more seriously if Richard Clarke wasn’t such an assclown.
The odds of Hastings contacting Wikileaks,saying hes going off the radar, then dying in a fiery car crash on the SAME DAY are extremely remote.
Not if the NSA is tracking the calls and internet activity.

Those things taken all together point to a ‘hit’.
if I were a journalist, I would be sticking to the wonders of obamacare and puppies.
A former cybersecurity advisor to President George W. Bush says a sophisticated computer hack could have been the cause of the automobile accident that claimed the life of journalist Michael Hastings last week in Los Angeles.

This is what popped into my mind too :0
But who would have noticed that? :-)
That’s pretty much what mid- to high-speed vehicle crashes sound like, Joe.
Wireless communications systems are already present in many newer vehicles. Onstar and other systems rely on cell phone type links.
You might have a long career, but you'd have to wait in line to get shots of the puppies...
What gets me is that vehicles I have seen which collided with fixed objects, especially hard enough to stop the vehicle and permit the engine to continue to travel (shearing motor and/or transmission mounts, overcoming the confining influences of surrounding bodywork) have left the remainder of the vehicle in far worse shape. Even then, fuel tanks were very seldom compromised, and fires were rare. In vehicles touted for safety, (you can wreck it, but they would rather you survive to buy another one), this seems a very strange set of worst-case scenarios (apparent loss of throttle control, steering and/or braking, collision with odd dynamics, and explosion/fire--especially if the vehicle was a diesel, which I do not know for certain). Add in what this gentleman was occupied with, and the particular timing in regards to his professional activities, and there is ample reason to suspect foul play.
