Yes, it is.  I can't remember the details, but it happened in the past few weeks, and it was a kid who stole the car and crashed it.  He lived, as I recall.

I really detest senior moments.  But that dog (Penny), that I use for my avatar, doesn't care if I have senior moments.  She gives me kisses, anyway.  LOLLOL  She is 8 years old now, and does not bite the hand that feeds her.  :D

I'm impressed by the way they maintained the integrity of the passenger compartment. The rest of the car has disintegrated, but the compartment has saved the driver from his stupidity and is even intact enough for the door to be opened.

That crash should have been fatal at half the speed.

Just to give you an idea of how fast that sucker was going, just take a look at how far down the road it went after clipping off that big power pole :)

That picture of the motor sitting there in the road , and you can see the drag marks that go a few 100 meters up the road.... he must have really been scooting along... i bet he would have also needed to hold his head like in the cartoons to stop his eyes from spinning after the hit, as I'm sure he would have spun  like a top for a wile...

It seems to me that the moral of this story is - - don't be playing with toys you do not fully understand the capabilities of . . . . .
Either that or the ignition has to have a "testosterone sensor" to keep boys (young and old) from going into Tim Allen mode?

only in California??
same story - different car, place and idiot between the seat back and steering wheel.

This is what not to do with your new $200K Ford GT.
This guy in Mission/Prairie Village Kansas waited 2 years for this
$200,000.00 car. He had it for two days and only put 9 miles on it.
He decided to try out how fast it would go, so he decided to punch the gas
pedal. When he did, he lost traction on the rear wheel and lost control on
a bridge which crosses a small creek. He nailed the steel and concrete pole.

Here is the full story now....
LOS ANGELES - A man under investigation in the crash of an exotic $1 million Ferrari in Malibu has been booked on suspicion of grand theft, officials said Sunday.

Stefan Eriksson, 44, was arrested at his Bel-Air home Saturday night after detectives served a search warrant, the Sheriff's Department said in a statement. It wasn't immediately clear whether sheriff's officials suspect Eriksson stole the Ferrari.

Eriksson, a Swedish video game entrepreneur, was being held without bail. Authorities also placed an immigration hold on him.

Eriksson was in a red Ferrari Enzo that was traveling an estimated 162 mph when it hit a pole along Pacific Coast Highway and all but disintegrated in February. He escaped the crash with only a cut lip.

The crash spun into a complicated web of mystery when Eriksson told authorities he was a passenger in the car and that the driver, a German acquaintance he knew only as Dietrich, ran into the nearby hills after crashing the Ferrari during a race with a Mercedes.

Sheriff's deputies launched a three-hour foot and helicopter search but failed to turn up Dietrich.

Last month, police impounded a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren driven by Eriksson's wife after learning that the vehicle may have been improperly exported from Britain.

Update:

Swedish Businessman Pleads
Not Guilty in Ferrari Case

Associated Press
April 18, 2006 8:25 a.m.

LOS ANGELES The mystery behind the high-speed crash of a rare Ferrari on a California coastal highway took another strange turn as prosecutors filed embezzlement, grand-theft, drunken-driving and weapons charges against a Swedish businessman.

Bo Stefan M. Eriksson, 44 years old, a former executive with European videogame company Gizmondo, pleaded not guilty Monday and was ordered held on $5.5 million (4.55 million) bail.

The case stems from the Feb. 21 crash of a Ferrari Enzo one of only 400 made which slammed into a pole on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway in California while traveling at an estimated 162 mph (260 kph). The $1 million vehicle was destroyed; Mr. Eriksson survived the crash with just a cut lip.

The accident triggered an investigation when Mr. Eriksson told police he was only a passenger in the car, described as part of his collection, and that the driver was a German acquaintance he knew only as Dietrich who ran into the hills after the crash. Prosecutors contend that Dietrich never existed and that Mr. Eriksson was behind the wheel with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit. The charges were filed after officials received results of a DNA test of blood found on the vehicle's driver-side air bag.

They charged Mr. Eriksson with three counts each of embezzlement and grand theft for allegedly bringing two Enzos and a Mercedes McLaren SLR -- altogether worth an estimated $3.8 million -- into the U.S. even though he had only leased them from British financial institutions. The lease contract prohibited him from taking the vehicles out of Britain, said Deputy District Attorney Steven Sowders.

During a search of Mr. Eriksson's house in Bel-Air, California, authorities said they discovered a .357-caliber handgun, which was illegal because he had been convicted of drug, assault, fraud and other charges in Sweden between 1988 and 1994. He was charged with one felony count of gun possession and two misdemeanor drunken-driving charges.

If convicted on all counts, Mr. Eriksson could be face up to 14 years in prison.

Mr. Eriksson wore an orange jail uniform and listened from behind a glass barrier during the hearing as his attorney, David Elden, declared his innocence. "This is a traffic collision that has turned into a major criminal case because of the value of the Ferrari," said Andrew Flier, another of Mr. Eriksson's attorneys, said later.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mary Strobel set a bail review hearing for April 24.
