Last pics of my 330i that was totaled :( Very Graphic Pics

Short story: Im in the left lane and there is a girl in the right lane in a saturn, someone pulls out in front of the saturn and she swerves into my lane and hits me hard, sending me into a 180 to hit a telephone pole. I suffered severe trauma to my pelvis and left femur. I am very lucky to be alive and am thankful every day. But I thank God that I am going to make a full recovery from this accident and that it could have been a lot worse.

Look for a 335i Convertible soon

Holy ****, thank God you are alive. That is one mangled piece of machinery, but it did it's job. On a lighter note, better get that T-Cut out!

Im proud of BMW engineering after this accident, this car held up remarkably, had I been in another car i dont know if things would have turned out the same. Im at home now i was in the hospital for 3 weeks, and in 10 days I go to see the surgeon to get cleared to walk around again

Incredible. The car is demolished. I am so happy you are alive. I am sure messing up your pelvis and femur was excruciatingly painful, but as you said you're alive - a miracle for sure.

OMG. You definitely had angels riding with you bud. I'm glad you're gonna make a full recovery. So I'm assuming your insurance or better yet hers is covering this.
