This is pretty scary:

They start out saying:

"Federal and Toyota investigators who examined and test drove the car could not replicate the problems Sikes said he encountered, the memo said. The findings raise questions about “the credibility of Mr. Sikes’ reporting of events,” said Kurt Bardella, a spokesman for California Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee that is looking into the incident."

But then a few paragraphs down they say:

"The memorandum obtained by The AP said when investigators placed the Prius up on a lift, they found the driver side front wheel well was dislodged and the brake pads were worn down. “Visually checking the brake pads and rotor it was clearly visible that there was nothing left,” the memo said."

So there is physical evidence that the man burnt out the brakes trying to stop, but he's lying only because they couldn't duplicate the problem? This is really bad. Are more people going to die because they're trying to cover up, perhaps out of frustration because they can't find the cause? What is really going on here?
