On all modern BMW's the power is instantly & automatically cut to the car once it is involved in a moderate to serious accident.
Right, that's the function of the battery post which has the explosives in it to kill the power to the motor... yet leave the accessories powered on a severe impact. I wouldn't doubt that the gas cover could pop open... but also the rescue folks now look for the QR code to know the specs of any special things they need to know (which i think is a surprise that it took so long to get).

Actually, it looks like a failure with the bolts connecting the front right breaking system and therefor wheel. You can see in this picture, the entire rotor is still inside the tire and the wheel itself is completely undamaged - that usually doesn't happen. If it was pushed out in the collision, there should be at least some deformation of the back of the wheel well but that's undamaged as well as the wheel which leads me to believe that it wasn't very attached at the moment of collision.

BMW will have to recalibrate the suspension to improve road holding at high speed.
