Supercar crashes are nothing unusual these days. Even on perfectly dry and flat roads, these monsters that devour fuel are a handful. But add less than perfect conditions and a driver that’s too keen for his own good and you have a recipe for disaster.

today reports on Ferrari 458 Italia crash that took place in the Chinese capital of Beijing. The driver was reportedly the son of a prominent Chinese official and as a result the crash has been censored for obvious reasons. Even the search engine results for the term ‘Ferrari’ have all been stopped. And all this because somebody had more money than common sense.

The two-seater supercar actually had three people in it, as two girls were in the passenger seat, and none of the 3 people was wearing a seatbelt. The two ladies suffered severe injuries while the Chinese government official’s son died.

Anybody who looks at the wreckage of the Ferrari or has survived a crash can probably tell it probably didn’t at 60 km/h (37 mph) because it takes a lot of force to rip that much of the car off.

There have been too many Ferrari crashes in the past year or so. Has the 458 and indeed other supercars been jinxed?
