talk about ther worse day ever for a CAR GUY

This is the worse nightmare I could ever imagine.....this guy gets his new Ferrari 458 after a TWO YEAR WAIT.....has it for two weeks and some A$$HAT pulls out of a carwash without looking, hits him and drives over the front of the car and stops in the middle of the hood!!!! The driver of that Ford better have some SERIOUS INSURANCE.....and you can bet he will end up having to take out a loan to make his insurance permiums in the future.

HAHA when he said, "isn't it all your favorite model," somebody responded, "not mine."


That would really suck.

Whoever filming was an ass, no respect.


Oh well, accidents happen. They both have insurance I'm sure. But if you read the "news" report on the site, the Ferrari is clearly at fault. Your post just has some fabricated story, I don't even know how you came up with it. You should probably edit the post seeing as the only "A$$HAT" was the Ferrari driver.

Yeah, something's not right if you don't know you're driving over a Ferrari.
Read the story too. If you're driving a Ferrari, I don't see the point in pulling an illegal maneuver. You think you'd be babying the car...

After reading the story, I'd say a 3rd person shares (minor) blame: the "nice" lady who stopped to let the truck out into traffic. If you're not 100% sure the person you're letting out into traffic is going to pull out into the lane in front of you (closest to the curb) and is going to travel in the same direction as you, you are begging to cause an accident. I've seen accidents happen a few cars in front of me, I know people who have been hit because of this and I've had some close calls myself all because a car crossed lanes and went in the opposite direction blindly. The instant you wave someone out, it's like they assume you are telling them "all is clear" and they don't have to look. My safety 2 cents for the day.

Accoring to what I read (if I understood it correctly), the Ferrari had crossed into the on-coming lane to go by stopped traffic in the proper lane to get to a left turn lane ahead. Seems likely that without the illegal manuver/his imapatience he would not have been in the position to get run over by the truck (my .02).

I agree seems the ferrari is at fault here. That will teach him to drive a car that's nose doubles as a ramp.

well in MOST states.....all that I know of anyway.....ALL vehicles are REQUIRED to yeild the right of way to all vehicles which are ON THE ROAD....the truck clearly wasn't....regardless of what the Ferrari driver may or may not have been doing...the driver of the truck was in the wrong. HE was entering onto a road way into uncomming triffic.

I see alot of that crossing over the *double yellow line* from folks in a hurry.

But you are taking a chance when allowing drivers,that are coming out of car washes,gas stations to go thru.Most of time they don't utilize their turn signals (ya know cause that's optional ) and you have no idea which way they are going.Sometimes tying up traffic to get to the other side or causing an accident like the above.

So he was sitting illegally stopped in oncoming traffic?

If you read the actual report and eye witness testimonies, yes he was stopped in traffic at a light but he got impatient and tried to pass everybody on a double yellow line and that's when the truck hit him. He was not sitting still as he claims to be, he was driving in oncoming traffic. This accident is totally his fault and he knows it. He's trying to spin it around and say it's the trucks fault because he doesn't want to spend $25k on the repairs.

maybe it's his fault...


like was mentioned above, in many states... regardless of location or orientation or violation; oncoming cars must yeild to the right of way of all on road traffic.

(not to mention, the truck was trying to turn left, out into and across the double yellow himself; he should have turned right and then made a U turn technically)


my guess is that the fault will get split. and that guy driving the truck will be more careful about merging onto the road.

I've written a couple of accident reports similar to this where someone was doing a quick illegal (and usually harmless) manuever where it ends up costing them big. The Ferrari driver is 100% at fault. I would have also (obviously) cited the Ferrari driver for crossing a double yellow line/divide, and/or for driving against on-coming traffic. The Ford would have only been at fault if he would have hit someone who was legally driving on the other lane since he legally entered the roadway.

Maybe you are right, in some states a vehicle driving illegally may have right of way over another vehicle. I just don't know what states those may be. I'm interested to hear which states those are. In California, someone following the law has the right away over those that are not (except for maybe pedestrians, but those are still a flip of the coin sometimes).
