You guys think a family mourning the loss of the youngest child would say stupid **** like this.

"But Sami, a careful dresser who wore nice shoes, cologne and True Religion jeans, was fastidious about his car, too. As Rabi washed the BMW, Sami supervised, reminding him to double dip the soapy rags and watch out for dust particles."

Half that article is out of context, so sad. What can you do?

You should probably delete your last post, makes you sound like a tool.

My Ride: BMW Civic
Sad story. Its not a super rare one though.

I remember my dad wouldnt let me buy (would advise heavily against) a turbo car with my own money when I was 19. I bought an NA FD2 Civic and still managed to fvck shlt up but speeds were low enough for no contact with anything to occur. This at least taught me how to drive and characteristics of a how a car behaves at its absolute limit.

I actually couldnt be happier i bought the civic.

RIP to the young dude though.

I agree with Fergo's view, early 20's male drivers are wreckless. My 20 y/o nephew drives like an idiot, speeding everywhere he goes, even on residential streets. He thinks its the "right" way to drive and makes fun of me because I drive cautious/slow, smh. Kids will never learn until something bad happens or until its too late.

Really sad story. Sometimes, one's biggest accomplishment can be the greatest source of sorrow.

I bet everyone in here is below the age of twenty and young as F**k just like me. Trying to play daddy on here, give me a break. Stop trying to pretend your all above the age of forty, pisses me off reading all the comments. The kid had a fast car so he went fast, and look what happened he died, the end. Lets all be kind, say a prayer, and mourn his death, not Sh*t on his family and already sorrowful grave. Okay, now, back to reality and remembering we all have BMWs too, so worry about your own *ass and learn to drive your own Sh*t at a speed that keeps your OWN life under control. Then we will see if any of you can judge this guy by whether your name has been etched into YOUR own granite slab or not.

Everybody?

I haven't made one disrespectful comment. I posted the link to the Washington Post article.

Secondly, I'm in my early 30s

Lets not make sweeping comments.

This could have happened in a M5, 525i or a civic.

But really some of the comments in this thread are disgusting. Especially you "fergo the mule", "The drivers seat is Imola"? Really dude, please grow up you stupid ******. I can only hope that one day someone VERY CLOSE to you crashes and dies due to speeding/poor judgement and I can't wait to see your reaction. No one cares you drove your dads **** AMG at age 16, I am sure you went fast in it, trying to act like a saint by claiming you followed all the rules must make you feel like a real big bad ass online. Grow up.
Imran, is that you?

at the end of the day, this was a simple mistake that unfortunately the driver could not escape from.

We all do less than perfectly safe things in life, especially in our cars, from time to time - but he just didn't escape this time.

If anybody has driven across the key bridge, it can be a tempting place to go fast - but the road curves sharply once you cross over to the Virginia side. I'm sure he'd driven across it many times, but misjudged the curb for whatever reason (speed, friends, cell phone, music - we'll never know). It's easy to do - I drove my E60 M5 across it almost every day from 2007-2008.

Without the M5, this could have easily still happened. What if it was an M3? or a 335? I wonder if the comments in this thread would be the same - or if this thread would have even been created.

Giving him the M5 may or may not have been a mistake, but it doesn't matter now - it's a tragic event. Prayers with the family and the friends who were injured. Someone was looking down on them from above that they were able to survive.

matt & huy - I'm sorry for your loss.

The whole thing is just a reminder that we're not invincible, (even though we feel like it sometimes behind our thick-rimmed steering wheels), and that the #1 cause of death for people in this driver's age group is not smoking, cancer, or heart attacks - it's accidents.

Doesn't matter, driving reckless on public roads is frowned upon. What if he hit another car and killed the passengers in a car driving safely? What if he struck your family member?

There are always local scca/hdpe/track days that you can attend.

Woah, my buddy actually saw this wreck -- he called me around 3am just after seeing a white M5 flying through the streets, then called me the next day, saying he'd heard of a bad wreck.
