Coincidence. To be honest, I don't think it sounds that similar. There's similarity in the chord progression, but the chord progression itself isn't exactly breaking new ground. I haven't played Classical Gas for a couple of years, but if memory serves me correctly, the chord progression for the part that you are talking about is something along the lines of Am, G, Em, Am. Not really rocket science.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

I don't think they did it by accident. It must be one of the various interpretations. Note that most of the song is built up by riffs written by Cliff Burton. As Cliff burton has played classical and Jazz music for quite a while. That must have been a lead to using a part like Classical Gas.
