2001 BMW M3 Description:
This was a mint condition M3 before the wreck. On the way to work, a Tata pickup coming from the opposite direction decided to attempt a U-turn right in front of the M3. The impact was at 60 mph. The Tata rolled over while the M3 spun around several times. Everyone was OK thankfully.

Seems the crumble zones in the M3 has done their duty promptly. Otherwise a crash at 60 mph would have hurt the passengers badly.

Looks like the Tata pickup rolled over and disappeared!
