BMW Broadsides Chevy at SouthPark in Early Morning Crash

Hard to say what would cause two cars to collide in a violent accident on a deserted street just before six am Sunday morning. But the force of the accident caused the Chevy to flip and one of the occupants to be extracted from the car by Charlotte Fire Department rescue squad.

The 2010 BMW didn't fair much better, both autos were deemed a total loss.

The wreckage covered the better part of SouthPark's main intersection of Fairview and Sharon Roads for at least two hours, while police and fire officials cleaned up the mess and investigated the carnage.

News Channel 14 is reporting that all four people were taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries.

However the CMPD cutie on the scene that CP spoke with stated that while the victims we all transported that their injuries appeared to be non-life threatening.

The officer did not have the names of the drivers but she did say that neither driver is suspected of driving while impaired.

News Channel 14 is reporting that it was a head on collision, their report and video is here.

Cedar, no way that was a head on, at least from the photos the damage looks more like the BMW got the chevy in a tbone move.

Would be interesting to see the report.

Oh wait CMPD doesn't permit that basic info to come out of the department. Do they?

Ouch! A little late on a Saturday night a claim drunk. Too early on a Sunday morning to be a bunch of idiot little old ladies going to church.

Must have been texting while driving.
