On Tuesday evening a 60-year-old M5 driver was driving on the Autobahn when he had to swerve left to avoid an incoming car. This caused him to lose control, crashing repeatedly into both left and right-side barriers along the road. The M5 then rolled several times before coming to a stop over 320 feet down the road, in the grass. The driver’s sons were following their father in an M6 and M3, and managed to rescue their father and put out the incurring fire with a fire extinguisher.
What is surprising is that the 60-year-old driver, 20-year-old passenger and the dog in the back seat all survived, though the two driver and passenger were hospitalized. This proves that the BMW really is a perfect Autobahn car, as it is not only powerful, it is unbelievably safe.
