Crash on 5 freeway last night!

So i was driving home around 230AM last night when i saw a crazy accident where the 91 and 22 meet the 5. From what i could gather it was a black e92and it looked prettty bad. The car slammed into a light post / guard rail, pretty much destroying in the whole front end. The engine looked like it was pushed through the firewall and the roof was pretty much none existant.

I counted about 4 fire trucks and 1 ambulance... anyone with more info on this? My prayers are with the driver... hope everything turned out for the best.

Please drive safe out there everyone!

Crap! Sounds really bad! Probably hard to tell with the crash and all but did you see any mods on the car? Hopefully it's not one of our own e90post family My prayers out to the driver.....

Dude I saw that coming back home, but I was going on 91 East. It was crazy and my heart was racing when I saw that. Hope he got out fine...there was no ambulance when I was passing by.

Ambulance was probably just not there yet. These type of crashes, ambulance will always come out.

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

The 22 meets the 5 right where the 57 ends (and meets the 22 and the 5)

And the 91 meets the 5 further northwest.

The driver is OK. Banged up a bit though. Turns out that it was a friend of mine. They had to cut the car up to get him out.

No he wasn't driving at hyper speeds but fell asleep due to exhaustion from work.

Regardless of the reason for the crash, it won't justify a death. Whether you're driving a Canibeat civic or the beastliest Bimmer, driving requires vigilance and if someone forgets that, consequences are usually fatal or life-threatening at the very least. I hope your friend makes a swift recovery.
