Police say the car's brakes fell apart shortly before it entered a winding road.

SUPER=03-Roanoke;


Investigators found pieces of the brakes on the road at the city limits, so hot they were melting the asphalt.
They say brake failure could have caused 47-year-old Anna Marie Talbert of Boones Mill to lose control of the station wagon as she rounded a curve on Pleasant Boulevard.
The car ran over a guardrail, flipped at least twice before landing on its roof and catching fire.
Witnesses put out the flames and rescued two of the victims, but four others died in the wreck including Talbert and her 14-year-old son David.
14-year-old Sylvia K. Hess and her 13-year-old brother, Bryant, both of Pennsylvania, also died.
Rescue workers took three other passengers ages 10 to 15 to area hospitals, they're listed in serious condition.
