Bay Area Meet went wrong (meet & accident pics NO 56K)

Well, Last Saturday there was a huge BMW meet, it was posted in like 15 different forums (including this one). 175 cars showed up, And tons of toys were donated for charity (toys for tots).
After the meet there was a scheduled drive to the hills between palo alto and santa cruz, a 100 cars went on the drive. On the drive 2 accidents happened, one 3 series hit a pole and then the hill, the car was totaled. The other car, a s2000 lost control and went off the cliff, landing 80ft down.... luckily both drivers came out with minor injuries.

Re: Bay Area Meet went wrong

Looks like a fun event. Sorry to hear about thw two cars, but with that many different drivers there will always be someone tempted to go a bit further than their abilities will take them. May the S2000 and 3 series RIP. At least they are just cars, and the drivers are ok.
