Truly sad! That us also the stretch I used for my fastest run in my 1M. Ironically I didn't hit top 155 mph because I got nervous about passing truck on right at high speed! I backed off at 150 and coasted to pass truck. Puts new meaning to BMW putting blood, sweat and tears into building and developing our cars.
The other observation is that this was an offset crash like is tested nowadays and current 3 series didn't do as well. However, this would not gave mattered here because of speed and because he went under the truck partially. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
