I completely agree with you on all points. Also I am still a little puzzled at why he never shut the engine off when it started backwards as he had to have been in the car to put it in reverse.

This "I don't want to talk about the accident..." is bullsh*t. As an example, I specifically installed a neutral safety switch on my car after reading about a Cobra "driving off by itself" after someone reached in to start the car, believing it to be in neutral, and it wasn't. I tend to do that myself sometimes during tuning sessions.
