A driver equipped with an onboard video camera captured a BMW M3 Coupe that crashes on a highway during heavy rain conditions. The M3 crashes and rolls over after losing control and according to the user that uploaded the video, no one was hurt in the incident.

Judging by the footage, the driver of the M3 slammed the brakes at a fairly high speed, and the rear traction coupled with high performance tires led to the imminent crash. Despite the severity of this crash, the BMW proves again that the high safety ratings are well deserved.

Back in April, a new F10 M5 crashed on the Autobahn at 300 km/h and after flipping several times, the driver and his passengers survived the accident.

If there is a lesson to be learned from the video below is that you should always adapt your driving to the road and weather conditions, no matter how experienced of a driver you are.

    Poor driving skills, probably didn’t have DSC on either.

  5. Soofdawg says:

    Moronic drivers…one doesn’t know how to drive…the other refuses to even stop immediately to help.

  6. Why do you have to switch off the DSC on a slippery road !!!

  8. this was taken on a highway (brobably the No.3 highway) near Taoyuan in north Taiwan on 02 August. There was a typhoon and it rained a lot in all Taiwan. I experienced times of “aquaplaning” on highway that day. …

    Wonder how this would have gone down if the guy with the camera had been in the right lane instead of cruising in the left lane.

  10. Kevin says:

    anyone notice the passenger side door opens up while flipping? scary!

  11. BabkenBMW says:

    The driver is to blame for the accident. The video clearly shows that the driver made a manoeuvre when driving at high speed in the rain which is a childish mistake. Let’s hope he got proper lessons from this accident.

    it was in china…

  13. Westsider says:

    He was trying to overtake the slow poke in the right lane with a very narrow margin for error, showed no corrective instinct, and paid the price.

    Prior to airbags, this would’ve been chalked up to natural selection ..
