The little black tab on the switch could have broken off or just enough so that it can't be moved fully into the off position. So check that out and try cutting one of those wires to see if that turns the truck off, if it does then the switch is worn out or there could be something in it's housing keeping it from turning off.

Maybe he didn't move the ESC switch all the way to off position and then turned off the Tx. That would cause it to keep going. It's called a runaway.

TCR, I assuming the same but you never know!
