Haider’s speeding caused his death

This video from Austria is about a demonstration against George W. Bush visiting Vienna in 2006.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

The Austrian politician, Jörg Haider, who died yesterday, was driving twice as fast as local maximum speed. According to police, he was driving 142 kilometer pro hour, though locally it is illegal to drive over 70 kilometer. While trying to overtake another car, Haider‘s car got off the road and got into an upside down spin. He died immediately.

It is to be hoped that this police report will kill extreme Right rumors now going around of their “hero” Haider supposedly having been killed by “the Jews”, “the Muslims”, “the communists”, whatever. However, myths often need more than one factual report to die.
