Honestly I wouldn't care about the M5 but would about the people in the other cars.
No info about this, but the driver of the M5 tried to run away after the accident, but the cops catched him. If it wasn't his fault, then why did he wanted to run away ?

I have been reading a lot of these accident posts, and it seems that almost always something about street racing, inexperienced driver, or driving like an idiot seems to come up.

I'm not saying that it couldn't be the case, but you never know guys, he might have been crusing along at the speed limit and hit by another driver. You just never know.

Why do people rush up and start calling names about the driver in the M5? Calling him idiot and ...stuff? How do we know it was his fault? Shiiish...

I had a friend that was involved in a serious accident, and it wasn't his fault and he ran away because he got scared to the living **** out of him. And then after he stopped running he went to the hospital and left the car there.

and even 15 years later the level of corruption is such that you will see this guy going through a lenghty court ordeal and walking away with a slap on the hands- even if there are a few fatalities in that particular accident.

i should know about those countries- just take my word for it

alex
few cars
Alex please dont make generalisations. I also deal with companies in Hungary and can say their are some hard working people who have made a fortune from their own inititative, perhaps taking advantage of a gap in the market. Thet can afford to buy expensive cars. Because they own an expensive car doesnt make them all criminals.
