Um.... it was 100% the Prius' fault for the accident. Not only do they pull into the path of oncoming traffic, they illegally pull into the outside lane. Should the BMW have been going slower? Yes. But they are definitely not the ones at fault as they have the right of way.

Right there you described why the BMW owner was probably also at fault.

Doubt we'll ever know the actual outcome but I'd guess it's shared.

Crazy accident though, kind of amazing how it played out and ended up on its wheels. Well, down side down anyhow.

The BMW driving was going too fast and should have seen that Prius entering that lane easy enough to slow down or swerve...

The Prius driver was a Prius driver...

How does this event have several people pointing cameras at it BEFORE it happens?

The only fault I see is the encouragement for the speed demon to purchase a car they’re clearly not able to respectfully control.
The real question is many luxury cars have you not seen misappropriated?
