Watched Long Kiss Goodnight last night, knew absolutely nothing about the movie before watching it.
If you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about at the end.

It's like Pulp Fiction meets Home Alone meets Nikita, not bad really lol

***Spoiler Alert!***

Ironically, ending was changed at the last minute because test audiences hated that a certain character was killed off.

In a handbasket
The local Niagara Falls mayor has speculated that this might have been a case of unintended acceleration caused by a mechanical failure. I'm still betting on a medical issue as the most likely. They had just left a casino though, so it's also possible that he was driving impaired. I'm sure they're scrutinizing any security footage they might have of the couple at the casino.

The crash involved a man who was traveling with his wife in a Bentley at a high rate of speed.
The crash occurred after the couple left the casino...
Death by road rage wouldn't be a new one and we only have to look a few months back at the gas station inferno that started with emotions out of control costing several lives.

Personally I'm open to any possibilities, many that haven't even been mentioned here yet. Hopefully they'll be able to make an accurate determination, and then find that it's benign enough to go ahead and report it as they found it to be.

He drives a Bentley. I doubt he cares about losing money
A Bentley 2022 Flying Spur that can do 0-60 in 4 seconds. According to this article from a British tabloid, Bentley had a recall of earlier models that were made for ight-side driving where the accelerator pedal has a clearance issue with some of the trim around the fuse box that caused the pedal to get stuck. Not on this model though.

If he had money, which it appears he did, then it could be someone tampered with the car so he would have an accident. I would look to see who would profit from their deaths. Wouldn't be the first time someone killed to inherit a fortune.

Well, doesn't that depend on where he "landed"?
It was said that rich people don't care about losing money and my take is that no one knows who someone else is solely off of one simple descriptor.

Anyway, regardless of what anyone else wants to decide about him based on his financial status up until a couple days ago, he's no longer thinking about anything.
