It makes perfect sense when you take into account that for large chunks of the "run" the driver didn't have to keep a constant check in the rearview for RY. Why not? Because Rob was in the RV.
I can't think of any other scenario in which it is likely that someone who had been pacing a runner in a vehicle for a thousand miles suddenly loses track of the runner for an extended period. It only makes sense if the driver was used to driving at running speeds without keeping an eye on a runner.
