There was a tragic car accident involving a M5 that occurred this weekend. I hope it is not anyone on this board.

Kenneth


A Helotes-area woman, her brother-in-law and a friend from South Dakota were killed early Friday after the car in which they were traveling crashed and caught fire on Texas 16 about three miles north of Helotes.
The driver of the four-door 2002 BMW M5, who was the husband of the woman and the only survivor of the accident, was pulled from the vehicle by a passerby and taken by helicopter to University Hospital, said Sgt. Steve Amerson with the traffic safety unit of the Bexar County Sheriff's Department.

The fire prevented the rescue of the car's other occupants, he said.

They were xxx xxxxx of Helotes Spring Road, xxxx xxxxx of San Antonio, and xxxx xxxx of Sturgis, S.D. All were in their early 30s, Amerson said.

xxx xxxxx, 31, was treated and released from University Hospital on Friday afternoon.

xxxxxx family members could not be reached for comment.

Gary Biggs, investigator with the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office, said dental records were needed to verify the identity of the three passengers who died in the fiery crash.

The car was headed north in the 17400 block of Texas 16 at about 2:45 a.m. Friday when the driver lost control, Amerson said.

Excessive speed in a 65-mph zone and alcohol may have played a role in the accident, Amerson said.

Amerson said the stretch of Texas 16 where the accident occurred is not considered dangerous. The site of the crash is just north of Ranch Parkway and a few miles south of Helotes Spring Road.

Gustav, I dont know what to do either. It would probably be a good idea to write a letter or something....but the truth is we don't know (at least i dont) who this person is....he only posted twice. The other thing is...we dont know what exactly happened at that time.

To any family members or friends of people who died in this accident. my condolences.

Wow. That's terrible. I can't imagine what he must be going through.

Be safe out there. Speed and alcohol, if that's true, just don't mix.

This is tragic news for the BMWM5.com family. My condolences to Scott and his family for their loss.

Perhaps we can all chip in and send flowers to him at the hospital?

At the risk of being politically incorrect, and this is just a terrible terrible story, I do not think it would be appropriate to do anything. The last thing that seems appropriate is for this individual, who just lost his wife and others, to know the entire Board knows the story. This is my initial thought.

Absolutely terrible.

My warmest condolences.:crying2:

Maybe a Beast Black Ribbon day. Black ribbons tied on he mirrors of a speacial day.

I wish it was only the loss of a Beast we were mourning and not the loss of life. A Beast can be re-built or replaced, a life is much harder to mend, for all those concerned.

Be safe all, and remeber what the most dangerours part of a Beast is.:sad2:

My thoughts and prayers go out to him and the families involved.


Gustav, I agree with 1080iAddict that what you have done is all that you can or should do.

Please everyone, drive smart and safe.

wow....thats horrible. my suggestion would be to give the guy some time to recover. even though we look at him like a e39 family member, his real family is what counts now. if you really want to be cool, lets all pitch in and get him a new m5.(j/k) my condolences.
