You know how action movies almost always has to have a car chase scene where a car spectacularly flies over a cliff before crashing down into a ball of flame.

This accident involving a BMW 3-Series Coupe didn’t have the theatrics of Hollywood, but it still was eye-popping enough to catch our attention.

According to the driver of the 3-Series who lived to tell the story of his cliff-plunging ordeal, he was driving along the Angeles Crest Highway in
California with a female friend when a group of animals caught him off-guard, causing him to swerve his 3-Series straight into the edge of the cliff where it flew straight off before tumbling down the mountain in a heap.

Remarkably, both the driver and his female companion escaped the cliff-flying episode without any serious injuries, although both of them know how incredibly fortunate they are to have all their appendages intact after such a terrible crash.

Well, it actually does look like a scene in some movie or something. The thing with accidents is that even though how advanced the safety technology a car has, there are still a lot of times when we cannot avoid it.

More like a scene in a movie were the car is in the midst of tumbling down the cliff and they’ll need to move back in order to escape on that car before the mileage fall. I think in this article, I was not concerned on the car coz’ the situation was not a reckless case so I guess on the victims, they’re both lucky.

The car was totally wrecked, and they survived. It’s impossible but it’s true. Be careful next time or just never drive again.

Poor m3 I hope It’s insured, I wonder if BMW still revive this m3, or it’s already a total wreck car..No wonder the driver is really disappointed on what happened.
