Death of a workmate

In a bit of a state of shock at the moment. Just found out that a guy I used to work with, and who is an occasional smoking buddy of mine, died in a car accident in weird circumstances early this morning.

****Updated with new info****
Seems that he was overtaking a car on the Federal highway early in the morning when his car slid for some distance, left the road and rolled down a slight embankment before hitting a tree. He was pulled from the wreck and was given CPR, but did not make it. The car caught fire a few minutes after the impact. Police are investigating and suspect that inappropriate speed was involved - my guess is there may have been ice or frost on the road - it was down to zero here last night.
**************************

The car (his) was a 2 week old Monaro CV8. He had his license for only a short time (although he has been driving for 10 years).

RIP Peter.

Sorry to hear that JCV8, no matter what the circumstances it is always sad when someone passes away.

Sorry to hear about that mate, a close friend of mine died late last year in a car accident and it hit me for six. Think of the good times.
