BMW M5 Touring Crashes From Flat Tire At 180 Km/h – 112 Mph

A member of the Swedish forum “M5board” who goes by the alias “Balazs” posted a set of images from a serious car crash he had in his M5 Touring this past July. According to Balazs, the accident occurred on the autobahn when he was travelling at about 180 km/h or 112 mph. After hearing a loud bang from the right side, the car went out of control spinning sideways at 140 km/h or 87 mph. It hit the roadside barrier several times before flipping over two times and coming to a halt. -Continued after the jump

Luckily, neither Balazs, his wife or his 7-month-old daughter that were on board that day got hurt (not even a scratch!). The police reported that the accident was caused by a puncture to the rear right tyre. Although the Bimmer was fitted with a TPM system (Tire Pressure Management), according to Balazs, the system never gave any warning whatsoever.

    Filling your tires from gas stations and car washers isn’t good ether,why? because these things have water in the air tanks from moisture and condensation,notice when you first start to air your tire water comes out, tires rot from the inside out from excess water which creates heat and damages tires, auto stores,K-mart,Wal Mart and other places sell portable 12 volt air inflators

    What kind of idiot drives at 110 with his wife and 7 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER in the car?

    does it help to have them filled with Nitrogen? I understand they hold pressure better and don’t lose the same as air. something about molecules.. i’m not a scientist, just wondering if it makes any real difference, especially when it comes to safety…
