      The driver stopped because he saw a bike fall off a car and wanted the bike. So he decided to slam on the brakes and REVERSE down the freeway to get the bike. He caused his passenger to die, and his passenger didn’t have a seat belt on either. They died by their own stupidity and thankfully didn’t kill anyone else in the process.
