Remember when riding in groups and passing to continue to accelerate to allow those following to pass and blend into the trail.

boy, there was a lot wrong in that situation (based on the little bit of a description).  Perhaps another good reason for not riding in large groups.  I wonder if they knew each other well and/or their riding skills.  Given the ages of the injured, I can only assume they did not have a great deal of experience.  Might be jumping to conclusions though.  Just gotta be careful out there.   :(
