No amount of airbags was saving those four dudes. Wicked.

High-speed crash, no kidding. That is a scene of total destruction.

Makes me glad none of my friends had a new M5 when I was a teenager.

"Hey man, wanna go for a ride?"

Shame..

These cars are getting so powerful and getting in the hands of inexperienced/immature drivers.. At least the driver didn't take any other cars out with him..

Must have been going insanely fast to lose control in a car like that..

Wow that is one of the worst wrecks I've seen.

My friends and I were pretty stupid back when we got our licenses. Thank God we were only working with an average of 140 ponies.

Exactly, to you and everyone else in this thread.

I can't imagine the type of trouble I would have got in with 500+ hp when I was 18.

Gnarly accident - M5 wrapped around poll

If you own an E30, you are a survivor of some idiotic driving as a youth, guaranteed.

Poor souls, r.i.p. Im slowing down driving now .

When I was a youth, I had a Chebby Monza that was lucky to hit 100mph on a downhill cliff.

It was still dangerous to me.

Of course, Pac Man didn't convince me I could be a street racerz, either...

I daily drive a near 800hp F10 M5, lack of respect will get your ass slung into a poll surrrrr'nuff. Even stock they are no slouch.

Its a big bitch and while it rolls-the-fuck-out, it can easily get sideways on you and with the weight in motion you've got to be on the ball.

One of the occupants who died is my gf's friend/classmate. He just graduated from the same Uni that I attend yesterday.
Terrible.
