‘Lucky’ BMW 5 Series dies in accident at the same New York City race track

BMW lost its top seller in its second consecutive year in the wake of a fatal accident on Friday, when a truck driver suffered injuries and was hospitalized.

The BMW 5 series, which launched in 2017, was the most popular brand in the U.S. and sold more than 1.4 million cars and trucks in 2018, the company said in a statement.

The accident occurred at the track at Midtown Manhattan’s Queensboro Raceway, where BMW was holding the track’s 400th birthday party on Sunday.

The truck driver, identified by the police as 40-year-old Joseph D. DeMarco of Brooklyn, was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Police say he was on the passenger side of the truck, and was traveling eastbound on the race track when the accident happened.

A BMW representative said the company is “devastated by the loss of a member of our team and deeply sorry for any loss this event has caused.”

The brand is continuing to work on developing new products and services, the statement said.
