A few days ago Jalopnik posted some pictures of an i3 sitting on the side of the road on I-684 in New York and called it "Poor Little i3 Gives up, is Abandoned in NY Suburb". The author makes the assumption that the car broke down and the driver just left it there on the side of the road, near an exit ramp for the tow truck to come and get it. While I find that hard to believe, at the same time there are few other valid explanations.
However we don't have the whole story, and likely never will. I don't suspect this is the kind of thing BMW would comment on so I wouldn't even ask. There is no picture of it being towed so there really is no proof that it was actually broken down, other than to say why else would it be sitting there like that.
What do you think happened here?
