death by automobile offers special opportunity for concealment of suicide and homicide. The person who plans to take his own life may wish to prevent discovery of his suicide to protect his family from disgrace or to ensure payment of his life insurance. The person intent on homicide decreases the likelihood of detection and punishment by simulating the accidental death of his victim. Most crimes are reported to the police by the victims, but the victims of homicide seldom have the opportunity to exercise this privilege.
