    See the "5 Fast Facts You Need to Know" about the crash - http://www.heavy.com/news/2013/06/michael-hastings-death-conspiracy-wikileaks-cia-fbi/

    The first two -

    "1. The Car Fire Was Out of Control. The fire that consumed Hastings' car ... looks like something out of a movie, especially considering it hit a tree. Cars hit trees all the time and few of them burst into a ball of fire. ...

    2. The Body Was Unrecognizable. According to the Los Angeles Times, Hastings was pronounced dead on the scene, but the body was so badly burned that it could not be identified and, in fact, still has not been officially identified. No autopsy was done today and it is unclear when one will happen."

    High probability that is why he was speeding.....Avoiding a tail,Or mistakenly thinking someone was tailing him.

    Is that the new way of getting rid of those that you don't like? Implanting an idea and letting people make there own errors from that 'idea'?

    Lets see how this...Evolves.

    It's funny, when I first saw the video of the fire, I thought man, if I was driving that fast and hit the tree, he would've destroyed the tree because the car burst into flames, but still didn't want to subscribe to any kind of conspiracy...

    ...Now I'm second guessing myself.

    I hear Michelle Obama's face appeared in the cloud of smoke, repeating "I shot Paul" over and over.

    Or was his car being remote controlled and had an incendiary device inside as well?

    He obviously was killed and planted at the scene.

    And the old Jew spraying gasoline onto the car didn't help.

    So interesting. Too bad, if anything indeed was going on, we will never know. This is like something out of a movie. Enemy of the state w Will Smith and Gene Hackman.

    Seems sort of "movie perfect" to me, but I mean maybe he knew he was in trouble?

    Modern cars don't just explode like his did. He was murdered.

    ^This. And another fact that the Hollywood Reporter is quoting a website Thetruthaboutcars.com ( they are apparently car safety "experts").

    the Mercedes C250 was traveling at such at high speed that when it hit the tree the engine and transmission dislodged from the block and landed 100 feet from the crash sight.

    Michael Hastings was a great reporter but that's what happens sometimes when you own fast cars, drive them really fast and lose control.

    Due to it being a crash involving a death,I think that the coroner will do an investigation of remains of person(toxicology,Dental) and car(Any mechanical issues not caused by crash.)........There will be nothing out of the ordinary for either I'm predicting.

    Car goes 100mph, car goes into the tree, tree doesn't move, car crumples, engine leaves the car, fuel lines separate from engine, fuel goes up in flames, fuel tank ruptures, fuel feeds fire, burns up driver.
