All I know is one driver had to be pulled out from the windscreen as he was unconscious and the public couldn't access him via the door due to airbags .

The other driver did a runner and left his wife and daughter in the car as Police later found drugs.

I hope the people in the car on fire were ok.

That's a huge impact to the side of the car which is much worse than the front.

Hopefully nobody's too seriously injured.

So it's true black bmw's are owned by drug dealers the one that burst into flames looks like it took a massive impact.

What kind of person does that?

Hope the others are ok, could so easily have been fatal.

What a cowardly ********. no doubt that ******* will get caught so see a prison sentence coupled with a divorce coming his way. utterly shameful behaviour.

I do hope the other occupants of both cars are ok.. Would like to know what actually happened to cause this one.. any update?
