An unfortunate crash on the Autobahn left behind a totaled F10 BMW M5 and two passengers severely injured. The M5 was flying at the 300 km/h, the driver lost control when trying to avoid another car that was coming onto the highway.

The M5 hit the divider between the two directions of travel, bounced off and flipped several times until it landed in the grass.

Despite the severity of this accident, the two occupants, a 60-year old driver and his 20 year old passenger are alive, but seriously injured. A dog was in the car as well, but reported to be alive as well.

Judging by the photos below, the passengers are not just lucky, but they also serve as a testament that BMW continues to excel at safety and passenger protection in the case of a severe impact.

We wish the two M5 occupants speedy recovery.

    Saw this earlier today. I am very, very surprised both and a dog came out of the wreckage alive! Shows how sturdy and safe these cars are…

    Best part… they walked away from this! 

  • BMW The Best

    The current 5 Series got the best crash test points in the EuroNcap crash tests, so I’m not surprised. Well done, BMW. And I wish the injured people quick recovery and another M5, but please drive carefully.

      crash tests have nothing to do with real life , euroncap is for idiots , they said renault hvae 5 stars , the tiny crash destroys the car completely , so screw euroencap.
      this car was lucky! , but it is also safe but not safe 300km

    Hope they recover fully! Thank you BMW!

    Truly impressive that they survived the crash. Glad that i drive BMW.

    Spotted lights in the left head lights. Thought that BMW would cut power to the battery at the impact.

    I’ve read that e 60-year old guy drove the car with a 20-year old girlfriend as a passenger and a dog… they all survived, heil BMW!
    His sons were following him with a M6 and M3!
    Nice family

    I am amazed that the passengers are alive taking the damage into consideration.  It shows how well-built these cars are.  I think this convinces me to finally buy a new ActiveHybrid 5!  Also, if you look at the other pictures, the lights on the car were still on after the crash, LOL.  I love German engineering…

    the circumstances were in bmw’s favour  , going anywhere above 100kmh and rolling is fatal , this guy was going 300kmh , if he hit the wall , there would be none m5 and passengers left , and the dog  too , the car is crushed and for junkyard already , such a shame though I admire the safety of this car in general~!

    “they also serve as a testament that BMW continues to excel at safety and passenger protection in the case of a severe impact.”

    WTF???

    What would you wrote after the Titanic sunk??

  • Guest

    I assume this guy had the Performance Package or whatever, which raises the speed limiter? 300kph is well above the standard speed limiter.

    Oh my! That’s a horribly scary looking wreckage and thank goodness the passengers including the dog are all alive. Prayers go out to them for their fast recovery. BMW’s are very solid indeed.
