This footage from the United States shows the driver of an E92-generation BMW M3 seemingly attempt to drift the coupé … but end up crashing instead.

The clip was filmed in Auburn, California. It shows the rear-driven 3 Series picking up speed as it heads into a bend. Its driver apparently then attempts to coax the vehicle into a drift but instead sends it off the road and down an embankment.

According to the uploader of the footage, nobody was seriously injured in the crash (the airbags apparently didn’t even deploy).
