This. Can someone paint a picture of what happened?I'm having trouble trying to imagine a scenario where the truck driver wasn't at fault in that picture.
This owner is a d bag!In Brandon, Florida, a Ford truck ended up parking on a Ferrari 458 Italia after it allegedly made an illegal pass over the double yellow line to get into the turn lane. Sources are saying the damages are in excess of $25,000, and that the Ferrari owner is totally responsible for the accident.

Ferrari is NB on the road, approaching an intersection, but has not reached the begining of the left turn lane, and traffic is backed up. So at this point, he is in a 2 way, 2 lane, North/South road.
Truck is exiting a parking lot on East side of road, attempting to turn left (South). Traffic pauses to allow truck out (common, at this intersection, as it often backs up 2-3 blocks). N/B lane is stopped, S/B lane is clear to make his turn.
Ferrari guy gets impatient and enters S/B lane, attempting to get around stopped traffic, to get to the turn lane, and not have to sit through at least 1, and probably 2 more light cycles.
Ferrari guy does not see Ford, resulting in a T/C.
Perfect! That's what I figured... It's hard to tell because we have such a small view of the street and can't see how far away he was from the light, or how far he had until the left turn lane.Found this on the Final Gear (Top Gear) forum:
