If those details are correct then the guy was a knob and it's lucky he didn't kill anyone else. One less ****** on the road.

So true and pretty raw for me at the moment.

At the begiinning of the month a friend of mine nipped out at lunchtime with a work colleague for a game of badmington as they do every Wednesday. On this unfortunate day, a guy in a Mercedes coming the other way lost it on a corner crossed the central reservation (no barrier) and wiped out their focus. Guy in the Mercedes plus 2 guys in the focus killed instantly.

Unfortunately, he and his work colleague were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It's easy to criticise the driver. I'd rather see it as a cautionary tale - how many of us who have/have had performance cars have never scared ourselves on a public road? How many of us have never shown a passenger friend "what the car can do"?

It's also very easy to speculate. Circumstantial eyewitness accounts of the car being driven quickly ... reliable? Or were they just the kind of pedestrians who see a car like a Zonda and assume it's going quickly because it's sporty and noisy?

On the balance of evidence, it looks like he probably found the limit of his ability whilst showing off to his son's friend. Foolhardy, moreso for not wearing his seatbelt (if that's the case), but still tragic.

Agreed, a case of "There but for the grace of God, go I".... terrible stuff.
