The car is so mangled its hard to tell the model, looks like an E36. The rims look like a very unique style, zoom into the pics. Apparently the car burst into flames immediately after the truck impact.

Will try again tomorrow, way too tired after 12+hours on the road...

PS, this is one of the very first videos of the accident, just a few minutes after, way before Police/Fire got there...

Pretty sure I saw this as well but didn't really see much, by the time my passenger told me about it we were past it. Too bad someone didn't make it.

And to everyone else, let this serve as a reminder that the 401 isn't a racetrack - there are few legitimate reasons to lose control on a nice day with dry roads. Perhaps it was a mechanical failure - a reminder to keep your car maintained and safe!
RIP and condolences to the family - such a waste, whatever the cause.
