Ferrari F430 destroyed in Russian crash

Looks like young Russians have a big problem keeping their cars intact. After about a month ago a Chrysler Crossfire hit a truck, with the two Chrysler passenger lost their lives, another tragedy was about to happen, this time in Moscow. According to the reports, a 19 year old Russian teen was doing more than 125 mph in his Ferrari F430, when he lost control of the car and smashed into a Range Rover. Amazingly, the Ferrari driver (whose dad seems to be one of Russia’s top bank managers) and the passenger are alive and they were taken to a local hospital and it looks like they’re gonna be ok. As for the Range Rover’s passengers, no serious injuries were reported.

What else can we add? Except that we’re glad everyone’s ok but the photos of the destroyed Ferrari really broke our hearts. We just hope this will be a lesson to the kids and next time dad let’s them drive one of his supercars they’ll be more careful because they might not get that lucky again.

    Looking at the photos one imagines that the passenger might be facing a longer stay in hospital and that the wealthy father’s pr firm might be mitigating the situation.
    As for lessons learnt – I implore every rich person with a penchant for fast cars, if you absolutely have to indulge your cherished offspring with Ferraris, please pay to have them enjoy driving them on the track rather than in town. That way, when they crash, they’ll be on their own, wearing a helmet in a car with a roll cage.
    If you love them don’t send them off to town at night in a Ferrari.

    I don’t think rich dudes realise how dangerous it is to give such powerful cars to unexperienced teens. And I’m convinced this won’t be the last crash we’ll write about and, unfortunately, next time the passengers might not get that lucky.
