Ah...you're close, chickey, but not quite there. Let me add another clue:

3. Edsel choose a different way home than normal.

I think someone diverted edsel
to the edge of the road knowing the road would give out and he would crash
I thinking it was the fortune teller and had given him the tarro card which explains why its there.
