Driver Passes Away When M5 Hits Pole





Sad.

A Nesconset man was killed Saturday morning when his speeding car struck a utility pole in Garden City, police said.
Brett O. Dinsky, 35, was driving a 2013 BMW M5 at a "high rate of speed" about 10:15 a.m. on Franklin Avenue when the car struck a telephone pole at the 2nd Street intersection, according to the Nassau County Police Department.
The BMW was impounded for safety inspections, police said. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Really looks irresponsible to be driving at that speed in that neighbourhood. Anyway lesson learnt for us at least.

Very bad place to hit the car. Rip. Drive safely. There's a time to nail it and many times not to.

Terrible for his family. Is that really an M5. It almost looks like a two door the way the side is caved in, the A and C pillars are close. Plus the wheels do not look like 20s.

Definitely an M5. I recognize the 343M wheels and the Competition Package exhaust.

The accident looks very extreme - the entire passenger compartment has been compressed.

BMW should get hold of this car and analyze it.

avlnch have a look at this.

So true RPiM5. I live on LI and and know this area and its no place to be driving at that rate of speed. Sad. I just had mods done to my 2013 M5 and the dyno came in at 581 to rear wheels. My business partner who has an M3 and knows power took mine for a ride after the mods and said, "be careful mike, this has scary power". You have to respect hp because it can get away from you real fast. I do believe that most m5 owners don't drive around speeding but when the opportunity is there and the road is open they hit it for short bursts. That's what I do anyway and it's on occasion. Guys be safe out there and enjoy your cars.

This accident is the worst I have seen after AmericanM5 (m5board).

How much force and speed does it take to turn a sedan into a coupe?

I think of the M5 as a pretty safe car, but once you pass certain speed.. the safest car in the world cannot help.

A reminder of the level of respect you must have for high performance cars.

It just shows how dangerous speed (any speed) can be. Looks like a side impact at the b-pillar with the pole.
The F10 is a safe car but there are limits as to what can be achieved.

thoughts out to the family.

Googling the guy it's says he worked at Nissan in Garden City. I wonder if it was a trade in on a joy ride or his own.
