Earlier this month, four members of a British family were killed in a car crash in Titusville as they returned to their rental house from the Kennedy Space Center, where they had gone to watch the launch of Elon Musk’s SpaceX rocket. The fatal crash occurred when the car turned into the path of a pickup truck. The family members, ranging from ages 29 to 66, were all later pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck sustained injuries, although they were not life-threatening.
Police believe the driver of the car was making a U-turn because the GPS in the vehicle had instructed him to do so. The instruction was likely prompted by an earlier crash that had caused a road blockage ahead. Essentially, the GPS was re-routing the family so that they would not get stuck in a jam up ahead.
