On Monday, March 12th, a 68-year-old resident of Weston burned to death after his Ferrari 360 Modena collided with a tree.
Although the fire spread very quickly, a 58-year-old passenger was saved and rushed to the hospital. Here is what a witness reported:
“We were probably at the car 10 seconds after it happened,” Norman said. “Long enough to run up a driveway and across the street. We were in a flat run; it was just seconds. When we got there the car was already torched. We got to the door, and it was so hot, I couldn’t get any closer,” Norman said. “The (passenger) in the car slumped over, and the kid next to me reached out, grabbed him by the shoulder and pulled him right out of the car. It was incredible.”
The man tried to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher but his efforts were useless. The driver, identified as Gianulderico Camuzzi, was driving the car when he lost control and hit a tree, the vehicle immediately going up in flames. Although bystanders got to the car in about 10 seconds, they only managed to save the passenger. Unfortunately the driver was trapped inside his Ferrari and could not be saved.
