Driven that road many times, that is a pretty treacherous stretch, the bridges are narrow, the road is curvy, and people haul butt. It's particularly bad going southbound, because it's downhill, and people get going a lot faster.

Great job by the rescue personnel and the Seabees. Sounds like the family will recover.

Honestly if I am not mistaken that bumper cannot be from a sedan so I would think x if not 118d which i highly doubt they had. Also look at the tail light its way to long for a sedan.

Looks like an Orient Blue E46 325i to me. Those tail lights are unmistakable and the wheels are also right for it.

There is a letter from the owner of this vehicle, Carrie Johnson, in the latest BMW Magazine (Autumn/Winter 2012). It was indeed an Orient Blue E46 325i, "Old Blue."

When I purchased my BMW 325i 11 years ago, I wasn't going for status or glamor. Truth be told, I wasn't even necessarily going for a BMW. What I wanted as the safest car my bank account could float.
