BMW Test Driver Killed in 3-Series Hybrid Prototype Autobahn Crash [Photo Gallery]
text size: A- A+
The crash took place on September 21 on the A92 in the proximity of the carmaker’s Dingolfing factory. The driver was involved in a series of high-speed test for the hybrid 3er, with the car passing some trucks at a high rate of speed. One of the trucks in front of the car entered the latter’s lane, with the driver quickly swinging the car to the right in order to try and avoid the crash.
Unfortunately, the BMW went into the rear of the truck’s trailer. The impact was extremely violent and the driver was instantly killed - he was the only one in the car, so at least there are no other casualties. The authroirities closed the A92 for a few hours and are now studying the evidence in order to complete the investigation.
