BMW 645 Crashed at Autobahn Kaiserslautern, Germany

Crash BMW

1. Got this story from the Internet. I found this story interesting because the crash happened at Autobahn highway which I think the only one highway with no speed limit. As told by the police investigator, "the driver of this brand new 645 BMW was going about 125 Mph when he hit the rear end of a Bob-tailed Tractor trailer. Really says something about the safety of the new car designs" He was actually blaming that speed is the issue while I wonder how can he know the speed of the car. No cars on earth will survive when hitting rear end of the lorry.

2. This happened about 2 Kilometers East of Kaiserslautern, Germany on Autobahn 6 back in early March of this year. The driver of the BMW is a 24 year old star for the Kaiserslautern Germany professional Soccer Team. Car cost about ¤100K or more according to the Polizei. He hit the back end of a Bob Tail AAFES truck and spun him 180 degrees around so he was facing the oncoming traffic.

Crash BMW AUTOBAHN3. The guy I was riding with was about 300 Meters behind the AAFES truck and saw the whole thing happen. BMW driver was doing about 200 Kph in the left of three lanes then a small car cut him off. The only option the BMW guy had was either hit the little red car that cut him off or dive into the center lane where the AAFES truck was.

4. He chose the truck. Never hit the brakes at all. No skid marks; happened too fast. Best thing was both drivers walked away. Truck driver had a bump on his right arm but no other injuries. Really lucky drivers. But shock isn't it? The driver of BMW walked away, with little injuries? Not dead? Hmm Hmm Hmm It is just too impossible ..
