Submission + - Electric motorcyle inventor crashes at Wired Conf. (tgdaily.com)

not5150 writes: "The inventor of the electric 'KillaCycle" motorcycle was almost killed himself after demonstrating the vehicle to reporters. Bill Dube, a government scientist during the day and bike builder at night, attempted a burnout in front of the Los Angeles Convention Center during the Wired NextFest fair. Fueled by the "most powerful" lithium-ion batteries in the world, the bike accelerated uncontrollably into another car. There's a video interview (thankfully before the crash) and footage of Dube crashing."
