OUCH. I know where that freeway entry is (I'm in N Phx). I hope you and your Beemer are ok. How bad was the damage?

I inhaled all the dust...which probably wasnt good..lol . My back and side hurts pretty bad though. As far as I can tell there is no body damage. I took out both rims and tires on the left side. I am just worried that I might have frame damage but all my doors and panels line up perfect.. I should just need interior parts like the 3 airbags, A-pillar covers and a headliner...but looks can be the root of all evil.... arrrgh

Dang dude, that sucks!! At least you know they work

When I got into my accident last year, it was prett bad, and I was hit at an akward angle toward the front drivers side. My airbags didn't go off :|

Wow! Glad you survived relatively unscathed.

Hopefully the damage is nominal.
