While many people in Nigeria are battling to get just one plate of food a day, a man in Britain has crashed his Ferrari an hour after he bought it. He survived what has been described as “a major crash”.
CBS news quoted Local police as calling the man’s survival a “miracle escape”, but the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, worth about $260,000 was badly damaged. It ended up a burning heap in a field.
South Yorkshire Police posted Twitter photos of the smoking, wrecked car, saying it “went airborne (and) burst into flames” beside a highway in northern England.
The police said in a Facebook statement that the driver “only had minor cuts and bruises” after Thursday’s smash, but they also detected “a sense of damaged pride.”
The force said the driver, not identified, told officers: “I’ve only just got it, picked it up an hour ago.”
