Ferrari driver, 60, arrested after crashing into pedestrian

A 60-year-old man has been arrested after crashing a £200,000 Ferrari F8 Tributo into a pedestrian in Kent. 

The driver was nicked on Sunday (January 10) after he lost control of the red supercar and collided with a passer-by.

Pictures from the scene show extensive damage to the Italian motor after the smash on Sutton Road in Maidstone at around 2pm.

According to Kent Online, the driver – who is from Gravesend – was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and later released pending further investigation.

Eye-witness Sanjay Bansal arrived at the scene almost immediately and exclusively told The Entertainment Gazette what happened.

“The Ferrari [driver] put his foot down and lost control, spun the car and hit a pedestrian walking along,” he said.

“My partner jumped out the car as I saw there was someone in the bush.

“As she’s first aid trained, she was helping out as well as a few other people until the police and ambulance got there.

Sanjay said one of the men involved was “shaken up and confused” but 999 crews arrived on the scene within minutes.

“They [emergency services] were all wearing masks,” he added.

A police spokesman said: “We were called at around 2pm on January 10 regarding a collision involving a car and a pedestrian on Sutton Road near the junction with Horseshoes Lane.

“Officers and South East Coast Ambulance Service attended and the pedestrian was treated for injuries.

“The road was closed while emergency services were at the scene and reopened at around 5.20pm.”
