    So.rry thathe occupant died. Glad no onelse was hit.
    DUI? Drugs? Stroke? Driver mistaking accelerator for the brake pedal?
    As a (AAA) driver instructor during summer break, before starting thengine I had students practice panic braking: Instantly take foot from accelerator and press brake.
    Repeat many times to become accurate and make it second nature.

    Senior Citizens especially should practice this panic braking to maintain proficiency.
