While driving Hatchback over Airfield black screen and message "You are dead".
Then I choosed respawn and respawned at East-Coast without waiting time as fresh-spawn. When interacting with apple tree, game chrashed. After restarting the game and logging in on same server, character was back again where he left the vehicle the last time (near the airfield) with all the gear I had. I ran back to where the incident on airfield was, but the vehicle was gone.
This happened three times to me, twice in an hatchback and once in an truck. Every time this happened, I got my gear back after restarting game and logging onto server. But the vehicle disappered.
