Usian Bolt crashes another E92M3



http://www.autoevolution.com/news/us...ain-46027.html



Quote:
Usain Bolt, the famous Jamaican Sprinter who holds five World and three Olympic gold medals, has crashed his E92 BMW M3 yesteday morning, with the accident taking place in Half Way Tree, St Andrew, Jamaica.

The cause of the accident remains unknown, with police currently investiagting the matter. Fortunately, nobody was injured and the car didn't suffer any severe damage. All we know is that Bolt had left a party when the incident took place.

Unfortunately, this is the second time when the runner crashes his M3, with the first accident having take place back in 2009, at the Vineyeards Toll Plaza next to the Highway 2000, when the car ended up in a ditch.

Our Say: We don't know what led to Usain Bolt crashing his BMW M3 and bringing it in the state you see in the adjacent image, but we think he could really use some electronic help from the Nissan GT-R while driving.

Has anyone seen the roads in Jamaica, no offense to any Jamaicans on here, but just like in Trinidad the roads aren't ideal for high performance cars.

And if you are the fastest man in the world, why do you need a car
