Driver Crashes £500,000 Ferrari After Borrowing It From A Friend

Shocking footage shows the moment a driver slammed his friend's £560,000 Ferrari into another car, just minutes after hitting the road:

The hapless driver, known as Jin, was spotted making his way down a main road in the Wujiang District of Suzhou City, China, when the collision happened, causing more than £30,000 worth of damage.

CCTV cameras caught the incredible moment the white supercar swerved from side to side before crashing into a black Toyota, forcing it off the road and over a traffic island, and slamming into another car and a line of parked scooters.

According to reports, Jin somehow avoided writing off his friend's supercar, which can be seen stopping in the middle of the road following the shocking incident.

Local authorities said the Toyota owner had to be freed from his car at the crash site and was then treated for minor injuries.

Jin, who is reportedly in his 30s, then told authorities that he was the man driving the Ferrari, which he had borrowed from his friend Zhang.

It's understood that the collision happened just moments after Jin had climbed into the car - he was actually on his way to return the vehicle to his friend.

The authorities have found Jin fully liable for the accident, which has caused more than 300,000 RMB (£33,950) in damages.

He has also been ordered to compensate the Toyota owner for their hospital bills.

Alarmingly, it seems to be the season for major car crashes. Last month, dashcam footage was released which shows a car appearing to repeatedly ram another vehicle.

In the video, a black car - believed to be a Seat - can be seen accelerating in the left-hand lane before weaving and ramming into a white Ford.

The Seat, seemingly damaged from the collision, comes to a rest at the side of the road and the Ford follows.

On watching the footage, you may initially be unsure whether it was caused by a complete lack of awareness on the black car's part or whether this was done with purpose.

But shortly after, it appears as though we have an answer, as the footage shows the Seat beginning to move again, performing a quick turn before ramming the Ford twice more.

Several vehicles were said to be involved in the incident in Plymouth, Devon, which occurred just before 11am on Sunday 29 April.
