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.

There's a really messed up E92 from Juhu here...Don't know what happened, but the damage was pretty extensive

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