    The chassis rails have definitely been cut by a hydraulic tool for extraction purposes.

    There is another article.. http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...f-ariel-atom-3

    Owner/driver is named as 30 year old Matthieu Desmet.

    The factory forum has a thread on the first fatality, Jocelyn Quivrin, here-> http://www.atomclub.com/forum/index.php?topic=10238.0

    Hmm..I clicked on that link and found myself on the "other" forum,from which I am banished for life. Must be a software glitch..
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    This is all unfortunate.

    To compound the tragedy, it was the passenger who was killed.
    Do what you will, but when you risk the lives of pedestrians, other drivers, or your own passenger - that's inexcusable.
