No inkling as yet as to whether this was intentional

The Daily Mail is a bit of a rag but this article seems ok.

The story is interesting. Very few details at this point. I guess that they are also former elite racers makes it a bit more interesting but they are, after all, just people just like the rest of us.
Whew. I wonder what happened to result on her jumping on the 'bonnet' of the car and him apparently driving like a madman resulting in her death.
It is a sad story.

A quote from his old team manager

"It was never easy to understand which Rohan Dennis was talking to.As if two different people lived together in him. He had his own psychologist. We often worked with him. Lots of calls, to try to deal with the situations in the best possible way. We put a lot of effort into it."

Seems like he was a bit off.

This story is so incredibly sad. I'm curious to know what really happened (and I'm sure it will come out eventually), but I almost don't want to know. My heart goes out to those kids.
