If you were ever on the lookout for videos with insanely talented / dangerous street racers and drifters breaking just about every law on the book and many times, jeopardizing the well-being of other drivers, you probably have heard about and watched Giorgi Tevzadze from Georgia (the country, not the State).
We regret to inform you that, according to a number of reports including from the M5E39 website and more importantly, comments on NeedForDrive (NFD), which hosted many videos of Tevzadze's wild rides, the Georgian driver died in a car crash in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. He was not the driver but a passenger in the M5.
While we have yet to confirm this from other sources, we also found a dedicated page on Facebook titled "R.I.P Giorgi Tevzadze" in which it is noted:
"Giorgi Tevzadze just died in a car crash. He was in the passenger seat at the time of the accident, and his friend was driving the car. Sadly, Giorgi Tevzadze died when the car lost control, hit a tree with the right side."
The driver of the M5 was injured but he made it out alive. There are also two photos of Tevzadze's black BMW M5 E34 from the scene of the accident. Tevzadze was reportedly only 26 years old. We'll update this post as soon as we find out more – in the meantime, if you have any additional information, tell us in the comments or in an email.
Thanks to Sergio C. for the tip!
