Driver Crashes into La Jolla Ferrari Dealership
Last Wednesday afternoon, a driver lost control of his car, struck two other cars and a Vespa scooter before crashing into a Ferrari dealership in La Jolla. According to ABC Channel 10 News, the incident happened just before 5:45 p.m., near Pearl Street and Girard Avenue.
Initial reports indicate that it was a case of hitting the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal by mistake. Bystanders apparently had to jump out of the way of the runaway vehicle. The driver, a man in his 70’s, was in a rare and expensive car, a $100,000 Fisker hybrid. Inspectors were called to the scene to check the dealership’s building for structural integrity. Thankfully, no injuries were reported.
