E30 M3 accident ! Bloor and Lansdowne



Saw this on cp24. Looks like an E30 M3 ?
http://www.cp24.com/servlet/an/local.../?hub=CP24Home

A busy section of Bloor Street West has reopened Monday night after a car crashed into a hydro pole and fire hydrant -- sending water gushing twelve feet into the air.
Police say the messy accident was caused by a motorist who lost control of his car near Lansdowne Avenue. It is believed the driver suffered a seizure shortly after 7 p.m.
He was able to walk away with only minor injuries.
The accident sent water spewing into the night air, creating a small flood in the area. Bloor Street West was closed between Lansdowne to Symington Avenues for almost three hours as crews cleaned up.

That sucks, hope the guy's okay....

With an M3 in the news, I'm glad it was caused by a medical problem and not jackassery.

Well I know for sure if their doctors find out they are required to take it away. It MAY be if you have more than one, I can't remember.

That sucks! I know a guy that had a seizure 2 seconds after he came to a stop at an intersection, if it had been 20seconds earlier he would have plowed through a bunch of people getting out of a street car!

Hard to tell what it is. Theres an M badge.

Theres an e30 m3 near my dads place, black, guy drives it like 2 times a year. Looks like its in good shape other than the fart cannon. I should see if he knows what he has

Pretty sure I see a diving board bumper there, Rob.

You're hallucinating about M3s again.

Forget the bumpers, look how short the door is! I think this is a 4 door car...

PS, just noticed the lights too...they look like the new 88up style, that never came on the M3...
