So this just in from Engadget:

Remember the former Gizmondo exec, Stefan Eriksson, who crashed his million dollar Ferrari Enzo last week? Well, leave it Eriksson to make even that really shady. According to Malibu sheriffs, not only did a supposedly-intoxicated and bloodied Eriksson flee the scene and reportedly blame the accident on a driver only known as "Dietrich" (despite the only blood being on the driver's side), but a magazine (and we don't think they're talkin' Guns & Ammo) was discovered near the scene of the crash. And now apparently a Scottish bank has claimed it may be the rightful owner of the million dollar Ferrari, of which Eriksson supposedly possessed two -- as well as a Mercedes SLR, which Scotland Yard in London supposedly listed as having been stolen, and that happened to be the same kind of car the Enzo was supposedly racing when it crashed. While we're incredibly perplexed as to what's gone down, why are we not the least bit surprised by the way it's unfolding? And why is our Uppsala Swedish Mafia-meter flicking off the charts right now?

But by now I'm getting kind of curious about the whole affair, and just how dumb can this guy be? Car's not legal, drunk, blaming a rabbit as the driver - Oh sorry, a mysterious friend? - Car's not even his? Struth, this guy's having a real bad run of luck? ;-))
So a quick spin over to the LA Times produces these remarkable photos showing just how much damage he's caused. It's now estimated by the Police that he was doing somthing in excess of 160MPH!
 
"It's straight as an arrow where the accident was," he said. "You really have to go out of your way to hit a telephone pole."

 

But in fact, Brooks (Policeman on the scene) said Monday, the car was traveling 162 mph when it crashed, far faster than the 120 mph originally believed. The Ferrari, with just a few inches of undercarriage clearance, hit a bump at a crest in the road, sending the vehicle airborne and into the power pole, Brooks said.
