Alpharetta police spokesman George Gordon told the AJC that authorities initially got a call just before 4 a.m. about a possible brush fire on Webb Bridge Road near Alpharetta High School.Now my Jeep is designed to get 60 yard into the woods - kind of the selling point, in fact. A Ferrari? Not so much. In fact, about the only way to accomplish the feat is to get up a head of steam. The youngster and his friend are pretty lucky: after the sudden deceleration of those 60 yards, their ride was is less than pristine condition:
“Unfortunately, when our police officers arrived on the scene, they discovered the fire was actually caused by a single-vehicle crash,” Gordon said. “They found a red Ferrari that was on fire approximately 60 yards into a wood line.”
Gordon said that the two men inside the Ferrari had crawled out of the car, but had sustained “significant” burn injuries. They were airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition, he said.
My Jeep looks pretty good, actually. Seriously, who lets their 18 year old out in their Ferrari?
