    8 am yesterday morning got side swiped by 18 wheeler changing into my lane, hit me in drivers front quarter, spun me out, hit median at 70 mph spun down high way for 1/4 mile and literally walked away.

    I guess not such a bad day as I walked away and will have replacment 599 by next week.

    Glad you're OK and a new Ferrari is on the way.

    Did the trucker even bother to stop?

    Wow man, sorry to see that. Very glad you're OK though! That is the main thing. But it's still a traumatic experience. Stay safe!

    As others have said - you are ok, and it could have been much, much worse. Glad you are safe.

    I had a truck run over the back of my Saturn and push me about 100 yards. Scared the heck out of me and I nearly killed the trucker when I finally jumped out of the car (no lie).

    As I wasn't hurt, I didn't pursue charges or anything, but he contested the ticket he received, so I had to go into court for it.

    Did he stop?

    I like how Jalopnik posts the article without a clue as to what really happened. "Maybe 612 hp is too much for the driver" blah blah that website is like a National Enquirer for cars.

    I had my '67 VW Bug run over by a cement truck and was mere inches from being crushed so in retrospect I always remember that and appreciate the extra time I was given and I think this accident has alot in comparison.

    Sorry about the accident, glad you are ok though.

    You have already found a replacement 599? Good man!


    Not sure why there is hate for Jalopnik on here. Doing a search on Ferrari on the site generates mostly positive articles and features, IMO.

    Just look at the article. The author doesn't know sh*t about what happened, so he just spews a bunch of snark about Ferrari drivers, whipping the anti-exotic crowd into a frenzy. Then you get responses like these.

    What's to love about this?

    They are worse than tmz.... Maybe national inquirer crossed with Mad magazine (although I thought Mad was funny as a kid). They lost me with the "hamburger faced Massa" headline after his accident. There is simply no reason for such a comment about another human whether you are a fan or not. They are like school in summer.....no class.

    Glad the OP is here to tell the story....
