Im not sure if this is what he meant, hopefully it wasnt just for a juicy story. (having been a Marine, then a cop, I too hate the story thrill seekers and blamers) But I think all too often we don't take the time to learn to analyze the safety aspects of our equipment and essentially do a real event analysis so that we can then make future vehicles a little safer. I know there is no way to make everything 100% safe, and that too can be evaluated and decided on. But could a mechanical safety measure change/addition/subtraction help in the future because humans are not perfect and mistakes/accidents happen? Or will this event teach us that in this perfect storm there is nothing to be done should it occur again in the future.Time will tell. Best to keep the rumor mill stopped at this time.
I knew the other driver of the other RZR his name is Jeff Schwartz . He had a house in Mexico not far from mine. Jeff went up the hill over a blind cress. Same they always do on a weekends and holidays. Reports are Jeff did not have his belts on. I dont think Pee did anything wrong. Just wrong place at the wrong time.I will just say this. It sounds like a random wrong place at wrong time accident. One RZR coming up a dune and Pistol in his RZR driving along the plateau at the top. Both met at a 90 degree angle into the driver side door of Pete’s. Pete was the “safest” person I know so I really believe there was nothing he could do and probably didn’t even see it coming. Everyone in Pete’s car was wearing their seat belts.
