Probably totaled in so cal

I was getting on the freeway off of lemon onto the 91 in Orange County last evening and came upon a painful looking accident. Looks like a black M3 tried to gun it, fish tailed into the side wall ripping the whole left side and wheel dropping the sway bar I to the pavement creating a 100 foot trench in the concrete. Owner looked ok but car was probably totaled. Frame looked bent. Feel really bad for the car. Anybody on these boards know/are the owner?

Shocking that on a freeway on ramp before the signal light even you could generate the force to rip you car apart like that. Impressed!

Curiosity if it is anybody on the boards.

yeah it looked like someone was driving to slow in front or cut him off in the two lanes of the onramp. He gunned it to past them/show off while changing lanes/cutting them off and lost the back tires slamming front quarter panel and left front wheel into wall. This was all within a few hundred feet of the turn signal and a few hundred feet from the onramp signal. Crazy amount of speed to cause a 100 ft plus trench in the pavement.

I'm sure he had DSC off too... because he's a good driver.
