What is most likely the first Ferrari 458 Speciale crash happened this Saturday in Berlin, Germany, with the Italian supercar hitting a first generation smart fortwo and destroying its entire front end in the process.

The accident happened at an intersection in the Schöneberg region of Berlin, and it seems that either the Ferrari or the smart driver had run a red light, with the smart fortwo trying to make a left when the two heavily collided.

The smart fortwo was sent flying over the sidewalk, hit a tree and brushed against a pedestrian before stopping on all fours on a nearby lawn.

As most of you know, all smart cars feature a so-called “tridion” safety cell, which works by activating other cars' crumple zones when it gets hit. Even though we are talking about a rather old car, this fortwo's tridion cell seems to have held up pretty well.

Nevertheless, the accident had three victims in total, including the pedestrian, with both the Ferrari and the smart driver being treated at a nearby Berlin hospital.
