More than a year has passed since the world’s likely most expensive car crash took place in Japan. On December 4, 2011 a 61 year old man driving a Ferrari on a freeway in Shimonoseki in western Japan. He was followed by 9 cars of similar price and prestige; 8 Ferraris, a Lamborghini and a Mercedes Benz. The man lost control of his ride and the 9 subsequent drivers failed to put on their breaks in time to avoid collision. The drivers were on their way to a super car event in Hiroshima.
On March 14, 2013 police sent the case against the 10 drivers to prosecutors for suspected violations of traffic laws. Prosecutors in Japan will have the final say about whether or not to bring charges but police stated that the ten drivers were either exceeding the speed limit or not paying close enough attention to the road in front of them.
The unusual nature of the crash don't end at the 10 luxury car line smash up, but also that police have waited more than a year to attempt to bring charges. Read the original article here
