Notice the time/location of the incident, 10:45 pm saturday night, just past PC. HMMMM? So much for the night time speed limit.
Pretty clear it was operator error, step or no step.

Also look at the ages of the drivers on the one report- 16 and 17 years old.

I am looking at a 25 Convincer in the yard. No step, somewhat of a pad bottom The pad has some deadrise in it, but nothing like the flatter Velocity pag that goes forward farther.

How, exactly, does a seat become "airborne"?
