I'm waiting to find out if he was racing and DUI. Was not a big fan of the guy but feel sorry for his family and friends.

Time seems to warp when you get up in the years, and the memory begins to distort, but I do seem to remember seeing news coverage and pictures of a very similar accident a year or two ago. Something about Ferrari's and hitting light poles sideways at Mach 1 always seems to result in two cars (pieces) for the price of one.
So sad when the adrenalin rush - booze fueled or not - results in tragedy.

and here I was thinking all the while...

if it were the P that'd tag'd the pole...

...it'd still be in ONE PIECE.

D'oh.

But, yes - quite sad. D&D'ing = waaaaay uncool, not to mention street racing... not even on an interstate. Brilliant.

Alas... Darwin. Que sera, sera...

I remember the enzo crash...
http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-ferrari28feb28,0,3986184.story?coll=la-home-headlines

Interesting how much safer the enzo cockpit appears versus the 430 when comparing photos.... Still amazed how the floorpan and longitudinals ripped apart on the 430...the enzo looks like it broke where intended - to protect the occupants.

No winners in this race.

If your looking for a good time, post this over at R'Lst in the off topic and watch the reaction's

I read that about Charles "Mask" Lewis Jr. Pretty dam sad seeing him go in that way.
I didn't know him or even knew what he was about, just sad to see a sport's car lover die that way

No good time at all when regarding destroying cars and/or fatal crashes...

We are all into the speed/power game and must respect and take care of each other.
