Here's a tip: If you're a test driver tasked to put a prototype BMW 2-Series through its paces, don't crash the damn thing!

Unfortunately, for one unlucky chap, that's exactly what happened on Sunday. The driver was traveling at a high rate of speed on Germany's infamous Autobahn when he suddenly lost control, smashing the prototype to bits. The crash was so violent that it demolished nearly 100 feet of the highway's barrier. Several cars on the other side of the highway were damaged by flying debris.

The driver escaped with only minor injuries, although he will most likely be searching for new employment opportunities in the coming days.
