    Ferrari 599 GTO Crashes into Taxi and Motorcycle, Claiming Three Lives

    A rare Ferrari 599 GTO, where only 599 units of such specimen is available worldwide was caught in a horrible accident involving a taxi and a motorcycle in Singapore. The aftermath of the crash has resulted in the deaths of three persons at the wee hours of last Saturday, taking place at the junction of Rochor Road and Victoria Street at 4.15 am. Reports are saying that the spot is known for being an accident-prone area.

    The driver of the fastest road-legal Ferrari, a 31-year-old Chinese businessman was already killed when the paramedics reached him. 52-year-old taxi driver Cheng Teck Hock, also a father of three school-going children and his 20-year-old Japanese passenger meanwhile succumbed to their injuries and died later on at the hospital. The motorcyclist and the Ferrari’s passenger however were lucky enough to survive the crash.

    Although police are still in the process of investigating the accident, a camera mounted in another taxi caught the footage of the accident, and almost got caught in it by a hair’s breadth. In the footage, it clearly shows that the Ferrari was travelling in high speeds and ran over a red light, hitting the taxi and barely misses the one recording it.

    The force of the crash was so violent that it had totally turned the left side of the taxi and the Ferrari’s front side into an unrecognizable wreck. Debris of both the cars and the motorcycle were scattered all over the road, along with what it seems like an engine, most probably from the Ferrari.

    You should not, unless you want to make yourself seem like a bitter and resentful sort

    Ferrari 599 has front-mid engine layout, with rear wheel drive. This accident reminds us to stop when the light is red, or yellow. Even when the light is green I always look left and right especially late at night or very early in the morning because at these hour people tend to beat the red light as there are very few vehicles on the road. RIP to all the deceased.

    Another proof that some rich people are actually idiots! To be going that fast through a red light, he's either too arrogant, showing off his car to the lady, or drunk! Feel sorry for the taxi driver, his passenger, and the GTO, what a waste!

    there's something wrong here..the 599 doesn't seem to stop at all..as if there was not traffic light there..i just couldn't believe it, with that kind of speed, in urban/city road and in singapore some more.

    maybe locals over there might give some perspective on how's the road condition, traffic light visibilty, awareness of drivers when cars passes by there and the hazards that might occur?

    The Ferrari driver is a total idiot
    Because of him, he took another 2 lives along with him
    Everyone doesn't need drivers like him on the roads

    Really bastard...just too bad he died and not gonna be able to live with the guilt of stealing people's life away....

    It was green for more than like 5 seconds? I do agree that at night a lot of people even in Malaysia, are beating
    red lights assuming not many cars on the road but worse of all, a lot are usually speeding during the wee hours...

    So beating the red light with such high speed, is gonna cost someone's else life...

    Still always respect the traffic lights like some have stated here..:banghead: for nothing others just leave the world
    due to someone's stupid mistake....:mad:
