Drifting legend Giorgi Tevzadze has passed away after a car accident in Georgia (country). Tevzadze was riding as a passenger in a BMW M5 when the driver lost control and slammed the car into a tree. The driver, who has not yet been identified, survived the crash with non life threatening injuries. 

Tevzadze, who was 26-years-old, was revered by many for his insane driving videos that were posted on YouTube. Others, however, found his antics dangerous and incredibly reckless - he did, after-all, perform most of his stunts on busy city streets.

Tevzadze has recently gotten married and was making plans to start a family within the next year.

Very sad.
