This reporter makes a rather startling claim about how the engine in the Hasting car crash "broke the laws of physics" by ending up behind the direction of travel. http://www.sandiego6.com/story/details-of-reporter-hastings-death-remain-elusive-20130708 Except she got it wrong. The engine was found to the south, on the corner of Highland and Clinton. This is quite clear from the photos. And here's a close up of the corner of Highland and Clinton. Source: http://goo.gl/maps/94mOs And just to be absolutely clear: While the engine going the wrong way would break the physical laws of momentum, it would also break the physical laws of explosives. An explosion powerful enough to throw the engine block 200 feet backwards would have shredded the car into little pieces and broken every window on the block. Forward momentum (impacting a tree at high speed) is the only way this could have happened. The fact that she got this so wrong as to go consult some "physics professors" without actually checking if her basic facts were right, calls into question her investigation. She seems somewhat predisposed to go with the conspiracy angle. There's nothing wrong with asking questions. You just need to start with a factual foundation.
