Top Gear linked to road fatalities

Two young West Australian men met an untimely demise overnight:

The mangled wreck of the blue Holden Commodore they had been driving lay scattered in six separate pieces over a 50 metre stretch of verge.

The car had wrapped around a tree before breaking up and bursting into flames.

The crash occurred in a residential area with a 60 kmh speed limit. An apparently meaningful find at the scene, "an issue of Top Gear magazine lay on the grass near the front bumper." This immediately conjures thoughts of a young driver encouraged to drive Stig-like.

Decidely more relevant to these fatalities, however, are the numerous gauntlet-like immovable obstacles lining both sides of the roadway.
