1) had trunk of car open to load suitcases
2) brisk wind came up and slammed the trunk lid down with extreme force. A child or adult could be injured if leaning into the trunk or if fingers are in the opening. When closing the trunk lid, I have noticed that it just drops shut with its own weight, after it is moved beyond a quarter of its full movement. I have a spoiler on my trunk lid which may contribute to this problem. 3) nothing done to correct.
