I did 230 kph on the tacho in my 320ci. Was redlining in 5th gear. I don't know how much deviation there is in real speed and speed on the tacho, but 230 kph is about 143 mph.

Sad that his two passengers suffered injuries because of his idiocy. One suffered brain and spine injuries. Having a spinal injury myself, I emphasize with the female passenger victim.

Hope he spends the rest of his life in prison.

He was just trying to show off to those chicks..

This type of thing happened all the time where I grew up. I know multiple people who crashed their cars going 100mph on narrow, bumpy roads. A few people a year died doing this, but I didn't know any of them personally, some were friends of friends though.

7 to 10 beers and a BAC of only .1 is pretty amazing. Must have a liver the size of a basketball, or he was drinking bud light.

Yeah, I wasn't condoning it, obviously.
Just some people were talking about this like it is new or something.
This happens way more often that mass shootings, but which one do we hear about more?

No. Article says ".10, above the legal limit"

You should ask your English teacher for your money back. That comma changes the meaning of the sentence.

What's the difference? According to my math teacher 0.1 and 0.10 is the same.

.10 above legal limit = .18 in most states.

.10, above legal limit = .10 in areas where the limit is under .10

It doesn't matter. He's under the legal drinking age regardless. Anything above .000 is DUI/DWUI

Given the severity of the crash BAC is relevant. The legal limit has almost no bearing on how alcohol affects the driver. By your reasoning, drinking a thimble full of cough syrup would reasonably be expected to cause a 20 year old driver to lose all control of the vehicle.

Did anybody else realize how poorly written this article is? Hope that everyone ends up being ok.
I can't imagine being the parents of all three parties.

...and of course they put "BMW" right in the title of the article. Some higher-ups in the world of Journalism must really hate BMW drivers; the make of the car is always brought to attention in a speeding or accident article when it's a BMW. The article that Ghostie posted that resulted in a fatality didn't mention that it was a Mustang until over halfway through the article.
