An exotic car crash that makes headlines on the internet is typically the fault of the driver of said exotic car. This wreck of a Ferrari 458 Italia, however, looks to be an outlier.
This crash occurred on the N71 highway outside of Johannesburg in South Africa, according to the Facebook page ‘police clips and pics’. A cow apparently walked out onto the freeway and was hit by the 458, crushing its front end and roof.
There’s no details on the condition of the occupant(s) of the Ferrari, but we’re assuming these pictures wouldn’t be casually floating around if we were looking at the wreckage of a fatal accident. We get the feeling the cow wasn’t as lucky, however.
It’ easy to assume the Ferrari driver was speeding at the time of the accident, but a Facebook user provided some insight into the situation in the comments of the post:
The N17 is notorious for cattle wandering onto the road. My Nephew hit a cow just before the Leandra toll gate in June and was lucky to get out alive. It is a bit low to blame the Ferrari driver of speeding! If it was any other vehicle, like my Nephew’s Mitsubishi Mirage, no snide remarks would be made! The Toll Company should be brought to task for not patrolling and keeping the cattle off the road! It is a National highway with a 120km speed limit after all!
