"He was driving home"

From where?

The bar? Was this at closing time?



"$135,000 Ferrari Testarossa"

He must be one of those that believed the salesman when he said the car will only go up in value.

You would think they would get someone to write these that actually had driven an exotic so they had a clue about what they were saying. And someone who might just got to the trouble to research the value of the cars.


I know these guys get paid by the word but come on. All you need to say is "A bunch of knumbnuts drivers acting like school boys in their daddy's Ferrari's had an accident today and involved some innocent bystanders. They were driving an assortment of expensive cars and showed uncommonly poor judgement".

Biggest Hedgehog I ever saw in Germany was about a foot long and probably 4" high. Most are much smaller. We kept cat food on othe back porch of our house in Germany. There was nothing but open fields past our house and we would get multiple hedgehogs after the cat food. They would actually fight over it, but it was in slow motion with a lot of snorting and no harm done.

Surprised he even saw one on the road. Or, like Brian said, a trip to the bar may have magnified the size of the hedgehog. Shame about the $47K worth of damage. That should have been a total.
