You’ve got a shiny new sports car. There’s a crowd egging you on. And the road ahead is empty. Your head tells you this is a bad idea but by the time it registers your foot’s already pressing the loud pedal. This exact scenario appears to be the case in this video from YouTube user Drew Storms. It shows the driver of a 2015 BMW M4 leaving a Cars & Coffee event held recently in Blackhawk, California.
Unfortunately, he soon loses control of the car which ends up spinning and jumping the median strip. The impact with the strip causes the car to go airborne briefly before crashing down on the opposing lane—facing the wrong direction.
Fortunately there was no other traffic or this could have been a much more serious accident. The driver was also fortunate to not crash into a nearby traffic sign. There appears to be some damage to the M4 but hopefully it’s not too serious.
