I watched CNN as they interviewed a witness who said the ferry accelerated before crashing.
One passenger told to the CNN that “the ferry accelerated when arriving at the terminal, which strucked violently on the pier around 9:25 am local
time. We looked puzzled. Why is accelerating? we wonder. I’m going to die. When it strucked, there were people who literally flew. “
There is an electrical connection between wheel house and engine room controlling throttle position. Is it possible, that just like Toyota, they had a
case of unintended acceleration due to EMI.
See my other thread about Toyota and EMI for further explanation as to how it could happen.
It's interesting to note, that officials are saying that it didn't accelerate, but throttle got stuck.
Hmm, where have I heard this before?
