Ferrari wrecked in Walkerville crash

A YOUNG man wrecked a late model Ferrari, but remarkably escaped serious injury, when he crashed it into a Stobie pole at Walkerville today.

The driver and his passenger have been taken to Royal Adelaide Hospital for treatment after the accident just before noon.

Both men walked from the wreckage, leaving the expensive five-year-old vehicle against the pole on Lansdowne Ave.

The car crashed a few minutes after residents saw it "zinging" past their homes at high speed.

"I was outside my house talking and we heard something fly up and it was this black Ferrari," said Vlado, who did not give his surname.

"It sounded just like, `zing, zing", as it want past."

Vlado said he walked "two blocks" around the corner when he saw a fire truck arrive to see the Ferrari smashed against the pole.

He said the men were "lucky to be alive".

"The Stobie split the car in two and it's basically up where the gear stick should be," he said.

it's really shitty and bumpy and my X would routinely bottom out and get unstable through there - do much more than 40kph through the bend and asking for trouble.

Gee, those X-cars must be bad, I liked that corner.

according to report just minor injuries - looks very similar to remains of my X, driver only needed half a dozen stitches in melon and sprained ankles/wrists and fractured couple ribs

They stole my joke from the Perth crash a couple years ago - "Ferrari in pole position"

Bunch more pics.

Can't say for sure but looks like it - same wheels, interior, shields and fuzzy shot of the plates indicate just a character or two...
