A rare Ferrari 599 GTO was involved in a crash in Singapore early on Saturday, claiming the lives of three people including the driver of the Ferrari.

The accident took place at a junction near the Raffles Hospital, an area known for being an accident black spot.

The other vehicles involved in the crash were a taxi and a motorbike.

Sadly, the 52-year-old driver of the taxi was killed, as was his 20-year-old female passenger. The man on the motorbike miraculously managed to survive.

A passenger in the 599 GTO was seriously injured but also managed to survive, reports the Straits Times.

The driver of the Ferrari was identified as 31-year-old businessman Ma Chi. Both Chi and the driver of the taxi, father-of-three Cheng Teck Hock, were stuck in their vehicles after the crash and died before paramedics could extricate them.

While police are still investigating the incident, witnesses claim the Ferrari driver ran a red light and crashed into the taxi, which then hit the motorbike. From the extent of the damage sustained by the Ferrari, it's likely some speed was involved.

  3. Gee, that is a no-brainer when speed is the cause!!! Fast cars and drivers who can't handle it will lose everytime. A shame that innocent people are killed or seriously injured!!!

  4. 1. Safe driving on the road is 100% about respecting the signs...
    2. D.M.V. should enforce mandatory safety driving lessons and corresponding endorsement on the driver license to those who buy exotic super cars
    3. You should never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly

  5. Another example of how the SPEED culture is out if control. Time to get the sanctioned auto racing body to speak some PSA's on behalf of their constituents who always like to say : "If you are in Control you are driving too slow." Very tragic loss of life and of course the excuses are always the same.

    SPEED Kills- No Excuses~
