White E36 M3 crashed on 101N past SR 154

I decided to bypass the rally this year and head up to Pismo Beach to kick off my long weekend and on the way up, I saw an Alpine E36 M3 and an E46 M3 in the median with the CHP. It looked like the e36 M3 lost control and hopped off the road and the E46 guy was there as a witness or for support. Anyone know what happened or who that was? I was passing in the silver M Coupe.

That Alpine White E36 M3 is still sitting in the service drive at BMW Santa Barbara.
It looks as though it hasnt been touched since the accident on 4/23...
It's really a nice one too, no sunroof, Fisk alloys, Hella HIDs, what a sad sight to see.

Anyone know the owner and what he intends to do? The car has Arizona plates
on it.

Definitely an "enthusiast's-spec." M3. No sunroof, manual seats, ...etc.

no, I didn't. but from the looks of it, its probably a total loss due to current value and cost to fix. BMW suspensions are hard and expensive to fix.
