Word went around town very quickly that on Monday morning (Memorial Day) a 19-year old flipped a Ferrari right in front of Sunnyfield Farm, the horse farm here that I always blog about.
This is what’s left of the Ferrari.
Two kids were in the car, the driver now under arrest for DUI. Do click this link because there’s VIDEO in it of where the car landed and how it’s destroyed. One article said it happened where 172 meets Clark Road.
It’s remarkable to me the boys survived.
If I had to guess, the parents were probably away, Junior had a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Moment, decided to have fun fun fun in daddy’s Ferrari, but made the stupid mistake of getting drunk. Not only could he have killed himself, he could have killed his passenger.
I won’t begrudge the boy for taking out dad’s Ferrari – what kid doesn’t think that. Seems to me I did that as a youth. Not a Ferrari, but I did “borrow” my dad’s 1964 Corvette convertible and take it for a long spin to visit friends in Lancaster PA!! I never got caught and I never told and I certainly didn’t drink.
I suspect the days of driving anything are over for the 19 year old who crashed. As I said in the headline, at least no horses were harmed.
