A red Ferrari F355 driven by a 22 years old boy was speeding
Not surprised by the irresponsibleness of such a young driver. The 355 isn't the best car suited for wet roads, couple that in with its 90's technology and a speedster and something tragic is going to happen. Of course, there was no speed shown in the article but I'm willing to bet it was too fast for that road.
Very unfortunate and sad. But I have to agree with Will. Young driver, fast car, wet roads, never turns out well.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS - black with orange accents - wife's car
F355 Berlinetta - Giallo Modena, 6-speed manual, carbon sport seats -recently traded in
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S
That's a terrible accident where a very young man and an 11 year old boy lost their lives. Their parents and families must be in terrible pain. It's a shame that young unexperienced drivers can drive such delicate car as they don't have a clue what will happen when driving fast with such weather conditions. They all should go first on track and take real driving lessons to help them realise the limit of physics. That would save a couple of lives...
Always tear you up to see such tragedy and whenever I see such, I cannot help but wonder how disconnected the reality between technological advancement and how "easy" it has become to drive these powerful cars vs. drivers' skills. Of course cars are getting safer to drive, but at the same time, just like a double sword, the technology and quest for more power often lead to such horrific accidents. It is seemingly easy to go very very fast. Not a great comparison but my in my 1958 Abarth the sensation of "speed" is so different that I do get scared feeling that I am going too fast, yet the travelling speed is like sub-100kph.

There have been many of these type of needless and recent accidents involving children whose parents seem to be completely absent and aloof when giving their kids powerful cars. Remember this one? (see link)
How disgusting comments there are out on several sites on the Porsche Girl..."She deserved it", and else. Yes she had a lot of mistakes in her teenage life but didn't deserve to die. Especially not in such a horrible way.
