BMW employee crashes 1 series

Two men are safe, but a new BMW automobile is not after it flipped onto the train tracks in Davis and an Amtrak train totaled it.

The crash occurred about 9:24 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of L and 2nd streets on the east side of downtown Davis, said Davis police Sgt. Rod Rifredi.

Aaron Singerenglar, 25, of Redwood City was driving the 2008 BMW 1 Series and failed to negotiate the "very sharp 90 degree turn," according to Rifredi who also said crashes are not uncommon at the site.

"The gentleman was heading into the turn a little too fast," Rifredi said.

The car flipped onto the train tracks and Singerenglar and his passenger, Peter Dempster, 26, of Davis, escaped before an Amtrak train hit the car moments later, destroying it.

The two men suffered minor injuries from the initial crash, Rifredi said.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor.

The car is owned by BMW of America. Singerenglar works for BMW, Rifredi said.

A Davis police investigation continues.

Wow. Can you imagine being buckled in a flipped car on the railroad tracks, and all of the sudden you see a train light coming at you?

W/o reading the article, I am going to guess that he's young and has never had the means to step into a BMW until now. And he was trying to impress somebody

True indeed. Obviously, something that is purely subjective can be stated as fact, as long as it meets your criteria!
