Video of the SLR McLaren crash over the weekend in Poland

LISTEN 00:57

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.

Here’s to hoping he never, ever does that again.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
