One would have thought that after driving for an hour at 200kph, he would simply of rolled to a halt when running out of fuel rather than "crashing" in to a ditch.

Something similar seems to happen in France every so often.

Whatever the cause, why can't a driver just turn the engine off?

If that is not possible, shouldn't it be a required safety feature on road vehicles that it be possible?
