Bad 430 Scuderia Crash

The driver of this Scuderia is very lucky...

This horrible Ferrari 430 Scuderia crash happened last Monday at 2:19 AM on the Motorway from Frankfurt to Cologne, Germany. The driver lost control of his Ferrari in the rain and crashed under the central guardrail. Due to high speed and bad weather conditions the car was lifted over the guardrail and ended up 80 metres (280ft) further in the other direction.

The fire-brigade freed the driver after first aid was administered. Hours later, when everything was cleaned up the fire-brigade was alarmed again. The driver awoke in the local hospital and told the authorities that there was a woman in the Ferrari at the moment of the crash. As there was no second person at the crash scene, it was presumed that the women had to be swung out of the car! After an intensive search nobody was found. In the end, the police found out that the driver dropped off the woman in Stuttgart before the accident!

The blood visible in the last picture is just scary, gives me chills. Thankfully he's alright.

Always sad to see such circumstances, no matter what the cause may be. He's lucky to be alive. Jimmy

Yeah, it's not nice to see images like this. I have another picture which is more of a close up of the last picture showing the cockpit, but I thought that the last picture here already is bad enough, so that's why I didn't post it.

Imagine what would have become of the passenger if she had not been dropped off, especially looking at the last picture!!

Didn't remember dropping off his passenger? Enough said...

Drinking and driving is beyond dumb - doing so at that obvious rate of speed is idiotic.
