This is a very sad event. I know I have watched our Formula SAE team practice and have a couple friends on it.

I am going to venture a guess and say that they did not have the proper towing equipment. Looking at the pictures I cannot see any stablizers for the trailer. It could have also been improperly loaded and/or it could have shifted inside it. Also is the inexperienced driver question as well as towing requires some skill.
