The impact was so great the engine fell out

Startling pictures taken by onlookers show the engine block lying on the pavement amid a trail of destruction[2] in Ruchill, Glasgow. The crash happened just yards from where gangland figure Kenny Reilly, 29, was gunned down as he sat in a similar car last April.

Sources tonight revealed the occupants of the mangled motor are linked to an ongoing drugs war in the north of the city.

One said: “The mob were in the area on the lookout for someone they intended to shoot. “They were racing along the road at an incredible speed and hit an island in the road. “They were going so fast the BMW crumpled on impact.

“The force was so great the entire eng-ine block fell out the motor.

Three men, all dressed in black, emerged from the car in a right panic. “They started to run off but one turned back and reached into the motor and emerged with a bag that held their guns.” The five-door BMW was abandoned with a back door hanging open after it mounted the pavement and almost collided with a metal fence.

The engine unit was pictured on a different part of the walkway, with scraps of metal scattered across the busy street.

The car’s front wheels were almost detached from the suspension. A local said of Thursday’s 5.30pm carnage: “It was that loud my daughter thought the train had crashed. It’s lucky they didn’t kill anyone.”

The high-speed collision forced cops and fire service crews to shut down the road as they cleared the wreckage. The engine was later taken away on a recovery truck. Another eyewitness said: “This is the BMW I saw booting it along Maryhill Road — the speed was ridiculous.

“They’d already had a front end collision as the bonnet was f***** and the trim hanging right off the offside front wheel.

I thought right away it was nicked.” Another said: “The car is a total wreck. I’m surprised they managed to run from this without injury.”

Police Scotland confirmed they were called to a collision in the city’s Bilsland Drive. A spokesman added: “Emergency services attended and the road was closed while it was cleared.
