A few days ago, we reported on that brand-new Mercedes SLR McLaren – it was a day old – getting smashed into smithereens after it’s driver, a 23-year old guy that had too much bravado for his own good, engaged in a street race with a Ferrari 599 GTB.
We all know how that turned out.
The SLR was sent careening into the opposite side of the road where it ended up colliding with several oncoming cars. Fortunately for all parties concerned, nobody was seriously hurt, although the SLR did have a young kid in the passenger seat that suffered minor injuries.
As for the idiot driver, he reportedly fled the scene of the crash and didn’t show until 17 hours later because he ‘took the kid’ to the hospital.
