Truck Loses Ferrari on German Autobahn

Has anyone else heard this story or know which Ferrari model it was?

A truck lost his ‘precious’ cargo yesterday afternoon on the A3 Autobahn near Regensburg. The package was an Italian supercar, a Ferrari to be precise.

At 16:00 local time, motorists on the A3 could not believe their eyes. They called the police and reported that a Ferrari was rolling down the fast lane just beyond the highway bridge Sinzinger. When officers arrived, they found an abandoned and closed Ferrari standing still in the left lane next to the center guardrail.

The mystery was quickly solved. The vehicle had come loose from its mounting unnoticed by the driver in the slope of the highway bridge Sinzinger. The car rolled backwards down the ramp. The Ferrari landed on its wheels and started its very special journey down the slope.

At the time no other vehicle was behind the lorry, so no one got injured. Also the car was undamaged.

The driver of the truck received a ticket for incorrect cargo. It is unknown what kind of Ferrari was being transported.

I would not think was true, except that a friend recently told me how he was towing his boat on a trailer... and to make a long story short, his boat passed him down a long hill on the highway, having somehow come free from his truck. So, I guess these things can actually happen.

Wow. Lucky for other drivers, and although I'm sure the delivery guy lost his job, at least who ever owned the Ferrari still has an in-tact car.

With a very unique story

I'm glad no one got hurt. But I highly doubt it was undamaged as they claim it to be.

Cheers!
