The South Yorkshire Police Operational Support released some ‘heartbreaking’ pictures of the charred remains of a Ferrari on Facebook, saying that the car’s driver got very lucky. Two photos shared on SYP Operational Support’s Facebook page show a brand new Ferrari that had ‘left the carriageway and burst in to flames’, according to their post.
The post also mentioned that the driver sustained only minor cuts and bruises – a fact that has prompted many surprised reactions on social media, given the condition of his car.
The accident took place on July 27 in South Yorkshire, UK. The Facebook post confirms that over-speeding was not the reason behind the crash of the brand new Ferrari 430 Scuderia.
On Facebook, the post has been shared over 3800 times, with many people wondering how the crash happened and others saying they’re happy the driver escaped.
SYP Operational Support says that ‘road conditions were wet at the time’, which may have led to the crash.
“Over the past couple of weeks there has been a number of collisions where driving styles have not reflected the road & weather conditions. Please take more care!” they request in their Facebook post.
