Angel Eyes: BMW 3-Series Coupe Tumbles Down Mountain, Both Passengers Make it Out Alive
A member of the dedicated BMW forum 1Addicts has posted these photos of the aftermath of a creepy accident that occurred somewhere on the Angeles Crest Highway in California.
According to forum member and driver of the 3-Series Coupe "M3KILL3R", the incident happened when in order to avoid some animals on the road, he panicked, swerved, hit the brakes and eventually lost control of the car which went flying straight off the edge of a cliff tumbling down the mountain.
Amazingly, he and his female passenger made it out alive with some minor injuries. Here's how "M3KILL3R" described the incident:
"Was bout 2 am on a saturday night jan.2nd, picked up a female friend who lives on angeles crest street and we headed up angeles crest mountain... Was taking her to a view spot for, u know...neways.
At mile marker 30.65, no speeding no nothing, max i went was 35mph.came up to a pretty bad ass turn...the second i turned i saw 3 animals of some sort kicking it on the road. I panicked, swirved, hit the brakes, hit dirt road which didnt help me from stopping.
Flew straight off the ledge... Flips+turns+tree+flips+turns+flips and landed on 3 rocks 426 feet down the mountain...both of us are okay...walked out clean...i just have a fractured collar bone and my whole left side is killing me like crazy. The female is perfectly fine, just a few cuts n bruises."
