A Need For Speed: Underground 2 Fact

Only those who play/have played Need For Speed: Underground 2 will understand this.

I've played the NFS games all my life, along with other games including The Simpsons: Hit & Run, but today, however, I've found something very interesting in Underground 2: A monument to a possible programmer of the game: Brad Lawless.

I found it disturbing, since I saw a video on YouTube, and I found out that this man had a car accident a year before the release of the game, and in the road where the monument takes place there is usually an "accident" between two traffic cars, that must a reference to the accident (I haven't been able to take a picture of it to show you guys, though). I don't know if the "accident" in the game is programmed intentionally as a reference or is a malfunction.

Even though the monument has been there since I started playing the game at a young age, I look back at it now and I feel surprised. The man's name also appears in the game's credits. So now, I'd like to know what you guys think about this creepy "easter egg" of the game, and may he rest in peace.

P.S: Here's the video I saw, it's in Spanish, though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ckq6l6dCQY

This if I remember right it is a memorial and easter egg for the death of Brad Lawless. I wouldn't consider it disturbing, more like Brad now has a legacy in a very beloved video game. May he be at peace.
