Hearing that, you might almost say it's like the car was being controlled by someone else. Which would be absolute crazy talk a few decades ago but may not be now. Cars have computers. The news dug up one counterterrorism and cyberwarfare expert who's advised multiple presidents and asked him about the crash, and he said yeah, that's what a cyberattack would look like. Governments like the US likely have the tech to control cars, he said, and if they pull something like this, they'd likely get away with it. As for what Hastings said about the FBI investigating him, the agency quickly put out a statement saying they'd done nothing of the kind. Then, pressed by reporters, they revised their statement to clarify that they'd lied and actually they had totally been investigating Hastings.
On the other hand, no one's been able to back up the theory that he was assassinated, and Hastings' own family now dismisses it. He died at exactly 4:20 AM after an evening of smoking weed (which he'd possibly been taking regularly to self-medicate for PTSD), and there were traces of other drugs in his system, Adderall or perhaps even meth. Did Hastings, like one friend suggests, accidentally crash while confusedly fleeing imagined pursuers?
