    Shocking Ferrari crash

    This occurred in late April during the Ferrari racing days at the famed Suzuka circuit. Driver Shigeru Terajima was driving his yellow 458 when something went very wrong on the front straight. The car spears right after pit out, hitting the safety barrier. The car basically disintegrated.

    Daaaaamn. That's horrible. The car just disintegrates! A side note, the corner guy should definitely have been BEHIND the barrier, not standing next to it.

    For damn sure was not expecting that. Let me go ahead and scratch a 458 off my list.

    It's been reported that Terajima was sent to hospital with serious injuries; thankfully, he did survive the crash. A track worker was also injured in the crash and was sent to the same hospital as the driver, but thankfully his injuries were minor.

    I would not have believed it. That car is utterly destroyed. Amazing.
