For those of you who attended our Bimmerfest Events in Santa Barbara, The crash occurred on the old original "Bimmerfest Road Rally" route
on US HWY 101 from the early 2000's...

Look at the car, and realize that 3 people survived the crash in a 3 Series BMW.

We lived in Southern California for many years and we know that stretch of 101 very well. When I saw the story of this crash on the news I thought the wheel looked like an E46.

Thank God for BMWs and for saving that family.

Saw that on the news in NorCal. I really feel safer even in my older 3-series. These cars are built like Panzer tanks!
