It’s not too often you hear about Ferrari 599 Accidents on Georgetown Pike, but that’s exactly what happened on Georgetown Pike in McLean, Virginia in the early morning hours (around 8:00AM) on Saturday, April 15th, 2016. The maroon Ferrari 599 was apparently driving in a way that allowed it to clip another vehicle and rear end an 18 wheeler hauling a large excavator. Some reported that speed was a factor, but as of right now, that’s only speculation. The pictures are quite amazing and rumor has it that the driver (the Ferrari owner’s father) and the passenger (the vehicle’s owner) made it out with minor scratches – a vast improvement from the initially reports that neither made it out alive.
Pictures of the Ferrari 599 Accident Georgetown Pike
Caught on camera by FindCarMeets Facebook Fan Rudy Salgado who said “It had just happened when I got there. He lost control at high speeds and slammed into the back of an 18 wheeler.” Georgetown Pike was closed for hours following the accident with motorists being instructed to make U-turns and find alternate routes to Great Falls. Interesting to note that the airbags weren’t deployed in this accident… but these pictures are nothing short of amazing.
The vehicle was later seen being towed down 495.
As of April 18th, it seems like the vehicle’s occupants are being reported as safe and sound with amazingly only minor injuries.
And if you wanna grab your popcorn and see the endless back and forth that took place on our Facebook page, here ya go…
Update: Larry Bowles found the police report on the Fairfax County Police Department reports website.
“RECKLESS DRIVING: Georgetown Pike/Towlston Road, 04/16/16, around 8:15 a.m. Police responded to a four-vehicle crash and charged one driver with reckless driving. An investigation determined a 65-year-old man was driving a 2007 Ferrari westbound on Georgetown Pike near Towlston Road. The driver crested a hill and discovered traffic stopped ahead for a vehicle waiting to make a left turn onto Towlston Road. The driver, attempting to avoid a rear-end collision, crossed over the double yellow line and collided head-on with a 2005 Acura RSX, driven by a 57-year-old Leesburg-area man; the Acura left the roadway and came to rest against a utility pole. The Ferrari continued forward and struck a 2008 BMW sedan in the westbound lane, driven by a 28-year-old Alexandria-area man, then struck the rear of an International Harvester TT flatbed unit that was towing a large construction vehicle, also in the westbound lane, driven by a 42-year-old man, of Fairfield, Pa.
The passenger in the Ferrari, a 36-year-old man, and the driver and passenger of the Acura, a 57-year-old man and woman, were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No one else required medical attention. The driver of the Ferrari, Josef Tosovsky, 65, of Washington, D.C., was issued a summons for reckless driving.”
