Vier junge Männer zwischen 18 und 20 Jahren liehen sich am Freitag, den 11.09.2009 bei Sixt einen BMW für eine Wochendspritztour. Die Fahrt endete in Unterhaching, nachdem der Fahrer bei regennasser Fahrbahn eine 90° Grad Kurve mit nicht angepasster Geschwindigkeit befuhr. Das Heck des BMW brach aus, der Wagen drehte sich und krachte mit der linken hinteren Seite in die Front eines entgegenkommenden Ford Fiesta. Anschliessend rutschte er rückwärts über die Strasse und blieb an einer Mauer stehen. An dem Ford entstand hoher Sachschaden (Achsbruch vorne links), ebenso am BMW. Die Insassen des BMW wurden leicht verletzt, die Fahrerin des Ford Fiesta wurde ambulant behandelt (HWS-Syndrom und Schock).

BMW M5 F10 186mph Crash in Germany | April 2012
The German Autobahns are famous for being some of the few public roads in
the world without blanket speed limits for cars. Nevertheless the overall
road traffic safety of the German motorway system is comparable to that of
other Western-European highways. But as proven this week, it doesn't take
much to get into an accident, especially when you are driving very fast.
A new BMW M5 (F10) with the speed limiter removed was driving at top speed
on the A81 between Tuningen and Villingen-Schwenningen (not far from the
Swiss border). Due to another driver who joined the traffic and didn't
notice the speeding BMW approaching in his mirror, the driver of the M5 was
forced to brake and swerve his car.
The M5 lost control, smashed into the median barrier, shot across the
Autobahn, rolled over several times before coming to a rest in the grass
and catching fire. The driver of the car which didn't notice the upcoming
BMW fled the scene of the accident. The two sons of the crashed driver, who
were driving a BMW M3 and M6, stopped to help their father and passengers,
and to put out the fire.
The 60-year-old driver, the 20-year-old passenger and a dog in the backseat
were all quite badly injured and were hospitalized. Quite remarkable,
considering the speed they were driving. This shows how safety of cars has
been improved over the years. But as this crash proves, you always have to
pay attention on the Autobahn. Accidents like this one will also fuel the
debate on whether or not a general speed limit should be imposed.
