Overloaded. If Detroit printed a manual declaring a minivan capable of carrying 8 passengers there will always be a fool to believe that means 8 lard butts at hiway speeds, and some mexican to try 16.

Really, Charles? Don't assume anything until the FACTS are released. You don't know that this was a mini van and you don't know that ANYONE in the van had a "lard butt." You know what they say about people who assume.....
