Saw this at RRC.com, biner with deep groove cuts a rope after a lead fall at the first bolt.

Well, that's an eye opener.

It is bizarre that the report goes into great detail about the quickdraw, but never mentions the brand, age, and condition of the rope.

As bad as that carabiner looks, there are a lot of biners out there just like that one. It seems a little strange that accidents like this have not happened more often. It'll be interesting to see if the investigators can reproduce the results.
