If I may ask, How did you hydroplane/spin out at only 50 mph in the rain? Did somebody cut you off/create an emergency braking situation?

I was literally traveling in the left lane it was around 5am so not too much traffic and I'm not new to driving lol I was going straight next thing I know the car is literally sideways no steering input, no brakes, no nothin until it caught traction again and launched me into the guard rail. Then I spun 4 more times and came to a rest on the shoulder. Those of you who haven't experienced a significant crash in a BMW and you are still in the roadway.. you won't be able to move it. (Some kind of safety feature to lock the wheels up) I've hit deep pockets of water before and it make the car feel like it was gonna lose control but I was always able to bring it right back. This was different I had no control at all. I was also on a downgrade.

Wow okay. Probably caught a big rut in the road that was under the water that got your front wheels sideways.
