    This is from a posting on another forum that I frequent. The individual goes to the Uni of NH. I'm hoping someone up in the EC might know a few more details regarding this one and if the driver is stable and doing ok. The 360 did have Vermont plates.

    And sorry, no pictures were provided by the poster.

    I agree 100% with Andrew.

    Also, has this been posted in the New England Section? They would be more likely to be in the know about this.

    I hope everone is okay. This kind of thing scares me to death. That's why when I ride the Road King, I have one eye in the rear view and the other on the drivers around me. I let HD make sure I'm going forward straight as an arrow.

    Maybe some good could come out of this by using the Ferrari for impact analysis. In turn, that could be used by the factory to build in greater safety features. It seems there has been a rash of Ferrari accidents lately and the only control we have is to look for a positive to come out of a horrible negative. It is a blessing no one was in the passenger seat.

    I hope the driver makes it ok, too. I am always outraged at cellphone talking drivers, and am even more pissed that, even though it's against the law in NY State, it rarely seems to be enforced- I guess it's assumed that if a distracted driver causes an accident as a result of phone use, it will be a factor in the criminal charges and eventual civil case, but then it's obviously too late for anyone unfortunate enough to be in the way. Sorry for the rant, here, but this just reinforces my already strong feelings that people's driving habits reveal them to be selfish, preoccupied, and uncaring about what their limited view of the world can do to others. My prayers to the driver and family. And yes, i hope the driver who caused the accident gets some real time in a prison (where, i assume, they don't allow cell phone use).

    Anyone see in the new car and driver where the F430 they were supposed to test got T-boned in Jersey by a cell-talking, redlight-running idiot. Fortunately, someone stepped up an lent their car to test, but it's a shame some guy just shelled out $200k for a brand new car and have it get destroyed so soon. Hope he had insurance.

    (Same with that guy who's 308GTS burst into flames at the gas pump yesterday- anyone see that on the news?)

    dylan,

    i would imagine the f430 they were referring to that got t-boned in the article would have been FNA's press car (FNA is in englewood cliffs, nj), and not a private party car. but yeah, it was really generous of the knappenberg (sp?) guy to lend his f430 and the turbo S cab to them.
