Two Swiss tourists died in a collision between two luxury cars in Sardinia. The Ferrari the victims were driving burst into flames after colliding with a Lamborghini. According to the media, the driver of the second car was an Indian billionaire, and the passenger was his wife – a Bollywood star.
The incident occurred on October 2 near the town of San Giovanni Suergiu in southern Sardinia. As can be seen in the recording provided by the L’Uione Sarda agency, at some point a red Ferrari began to overtake a white camper on a straight road. When it was almost at the height of the larger vehicle, the navy blue Lamborghini located right behind the van also started overtaking.
The recording shows the Lamborghini overturning the camper, hitting its lower part, and then falling off the road. The overturned van covers the rest of the road, so you can’t see what’s happening to the Ferrari pushed forward. L’Uione Sarda reports that the red car burst into flames after the collision. It was not possible to save a married couple from Zurich in Switzerland: a 63-year-old woman and a man four years older than her.
Sardinia. Bollywood star involved in an accident
The Times of India reports that the passenger in the Lamborghini that caused the collision was Bollywood star, 46-year-old actress Gayatri Joshi. The car was driven by her husband, 53-year-old Indian billionaire Vikas Oberoi. They escaped the accident unscathed. The man responsible for causing a fatal accident could face up to seven years in prison, an Indian newspaper reports. In turn, the Swiss “Blick” reports that the victims knew Joshi and Oberoi. The two couples drove around Sardinia together in rented cars. There are also other luxury cars visible in the video, perhaps they were also part of this escapade.
The camper that was involved in the accident was traveled by an approximately 60-year-old couple from the South Tyrol region in the north Italian. – We looked death in the face. These were long moments of terror during which we did not understand what was happening. When we went outside, it was hell,” said Lorenzo Mascarin, a man who was in the camper with his wife. Nothing serious happened to any of them.
