Footage of what appears to be a race between a BMW M4 and a previous-gen (?) Audi S8 battling each other along San Diego’s State Route 94 made its way online recently, with the action taking place last week, June 6th.
Unfortunately, the driver of the BMW can be seen losing control at one point, crashing into another vehicle. Thankfully, nobody was injured in the crash, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), reports ABC 10 News.
“Just a complete surprise,” said a witness who shared the video yet requested to remain anonymous. “I just see them come out of nowhere and spin out, and runs into the back of the car. In real time, I didn’t even see the other car.”
“My first thought was, he was running from the cops.”
The witness also said that the BMW driver stopped to check on the innocent victim, before heading back across the road to his damaged M4 Coupe.
Currently, the incident is under investigation by the CHP, who think that it is possibly a street racing-related crash (sure looks that way), although no arrests have been made at this point.
“Ain’t no real reason to go that fast with that many people on the road,” added the witness. “He completely totaled the back of that guy’s car and there could have been a kid back there.”
As for why the driver of the M4 lost control in the first place, it seems that the Audi might have spooked him by proximity alone (unless there was also some contact). In either case, it’s safe to say that neither car should have been in that position to begin with.
