Road accident claim news
MOT worker crashes customer's Ferrari
A very costly road accident claim is likely to be made against a MOT centre driver who crashed a customer's Ferrari 612 Scaglietti into a lamppost.
The driver, who was a road tester from a local MOT centre in New Malden, Surrey, is said to have been taking the car out on a "quick road test" before returning it to its owner.
According to witnesses, the MOT worker, who is in his early 20s, lost control of the car at a roundabout and crashed into a lamppost.
The dark blue Ferrari was seriously damaged in the crash but the driver escaped the car accident unhurt although he was treated for shock at the scene by paramedics.
Police have said the incident is being treated as a "one car accident" and that there was no need for any further investigations.
As one of only a handful of its kind in the country, repair work to the Ferrari is likely to result in a very costly road accident claim.
