£250,000 Ferrari Involved In Crash With London Bus
A £250,000 Ferrari has been involved in a crash with a London bus, with photos and video footage from the scene filmed by rapper Swarmz showing the front of the car had been completely mangled in the incident.
Police were called to the scene at around 1.50pm yesterday (Sunday 24 May), following reports that there had been a collision in Westminster, London.
After crashing with a double decker bus, the Ferrari - a 488 GTB, which retails at around £250,000 - had been badly damaged, with the front of the vehicle completely crushed.
In one witness' photos, various car parts could also be seen strewn across the road.
A statement from the Metropolitan Police said there were no reports of any injuries, and that no arrests had been made.
A spokeswoman said: "Police were called at approximately 1.50pm on Sunday May 24 to reports of a damage-only collision on Northumberland Avenue, Westminster.
"No reports of injuries and no arrests."
Rapper Swarmz was at the scene, sharing an Instagram video of the crashed Ferrari, saying: "F***ing hell man."
In a second video, he added: "Look at that. F***'s sake."
It is not clear if Swarmz (real name Brandon Scott) was involved in the incident. LADbible has reached out to Swarmz's management for comment.
A YouTuber called Freddie Atkins - who had supposedly been at the scene - shared a series of post-crash photos on Instagram, writing: "488 obliterated this afternoon in London [...] Driver and passenger thankfully both unharmed but car sustained quite some damage after a collision with a bus."

One of the photos showed the interior of the Ferrari, where the driver's airbag had been deployed.
Another eyewitness, who did not see the collision itself, tweeted: "The remains of a Ferrari on Northumberland Avenue. Damaged bus in the background.
"All three emergency services in attendance along with Westminster's cleaning team tidying up the mess."
They added: "The City of Westminster's cleaning crews were cleaning the road, removing debris, sprinkling sand.
"No sign of any injured people or driver. The road was still closed but footpath open."
While you wouldn't want to crash any car, damaging a Ferrari must have a particularly big sting to it.
That's right, it WASN'T EVEN THEIR CAR.
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.
