An innocent motorist died after a racing Porsche and Ferrari crash into an oncoming Skoda in Slovakia. Both cars were captured on a dashcam speeding on the wrong side of the road. The video shows the moment of impact. Sadly, the oncoming driver had no way of avoiding the two speeding cars.
The cars involved were a yellow Ferrari 458 Spider and a black Porsche Cayenne Turbo, both Polish registered. A third car (Mercedes) was also with the group but was not involved in the accident. Earlier footage shows the Ferrari speeding along the motorway, undertaking another car in a dangerous manoeuvre. At this stage the undertake is carried out without incident, but highlights that the driver was not driving safely.
The latter video shows the same Ferrari 458 Spider carrying out illegal overtaking manoeuvres along the same stretch of road. The Ferrari fast approaches the car in front and despite the solid white line, proceeds to overtake on the wrong side of the road. Spotting the oncoming car, the Ferrari stays close to the right to avoid the crash.
However, the Porsche driver who was also speeding seemed to spot the oncoming car late. He was also trying to overtake the car in front but despite braking first hit the Ferrari. Accidents involving speeding cars are unfortunately very common and people have been severley injured because of them. If you have been a pedestrian and have been hit by a speeding car then you may be able to make a claim. Be sure to contact the best pedestrian accident lawyer in your area who can offer you any help and support you may need.
The Porsche and Ferrari Crash
As the Porsche driver slammed on his brakes he clipped the rear of the Ferrari, in what otherwise would have been a minor incident. However, pulling out wider than the Ferrari itself, he placed himself squarely in front of the oncoming Skoda.
Inevitably the Porsche driver crashed head on, bringing the Skoda to an almost instant stop. The driver of the Skoda is reported to have died on the way to the hospital, and his wife who was passenger is said to be in a critical condition.
The Slovakian Police were quick on the scene and arrested the drivers of the Polish registered Ferrari, Porsche and Mercedes. All three drivers are being held on charges of “Reckless Endangerment”, which if they are found guilty can lead to a 15 years sentence in prison.
