Default Another 360 wrecked

Schumacher fan causes chaos in Ferrari

A Michael Schumacher fan who wanted to emulate his hero virtually demolished an entire street when he crashed a new Ferrari.

The 28-year-old, who has not yet been named, caused nearly 200,000 of damage in Dusseldorf.

His firm's new 70,000 Ferrari F360 was a write-off, and he caused another 120,000 damage.

He smashed into three parked cars, two bikes, a street lamp, a set of traffic lights, a billboard, a signal box and two trees, and left a number of houses without power.

The young driver, who emerged from the vehicle unhurt, told passers-by: "There was a problem with the gears."

But a police spokesman said: "We have a number of witnesses who said the driver was travelling too fast."

Fire fighters and police were forced to close off the street to clear up the mess and estimated that the damage would amount to 120,000.

Pedestrian Matthias Richter, 55, said: "I walked past just a few seconds before he went careening into the parked cars, and was lucky to escape without injury."

Police officer Waldemar Goelling, who had just dropped off his wife and daughter at the scene, said: "If I had stopped, my BMW would have been destroyed too and we would most likely all be in hospital now

But I'm still trying to imagine how he crashed into ALL those things! There is no picture to clear my imagination.

I think you are mistaken. Dusseldorf is not in Uk but in Germany. And i don't understand the mercedes connection..
