2 guys and a dog, hmmm. Either the driver was getting some road head, or peanut butter was involved.

^ HAHHAHA, im not surprised. They have these 180mph wrecks everytime some new bad ass German car comes out. They usually always survive.

It is fishy tho. 60yo w/ 20 yo and a dog. :
The A81 does have some nice unrestricted bits. A45 has more tho.

Had there been trees or large dense objects, the story may have been different. Lucky to get out of this one alive.

My Ride: Phoenix Yellow M3
A new 2013 BMW M5 being driven at speeds of up to 186 mph on the A81 autobahn in Germany has suffered a violent crash.

The 60-year-old driver reportedly lost control of the car when he swerved to avoid another vehicle that was merging with traffic erratically.

The M5 eventually hit a central divider before shooting across the stretch of autobahn and flipping several times and landing on a patch of grass.

The impact of the crash was so severe that components, including a wheel and attached damper, were flung many feet away from the car.

According to a news summary picked up by BimmerPost, the crash occurred late on Tuesday. The summary also stated that the driver plus a 20-year-old passenger and a dog managed to survive, though without escaping serious injury.

Following the M5 were an M6 and an M3 being driven by the driver's sons. They were able to put out a fire that started in the M5's engine bay following the crash.

The driver of the car that was reportedly merging with traffic erratically failed to stop.
