A 24 year old racing driver, Flavio Pierleoni, was involved in a very serious accident in a Lamborghini Aventador in Italy yesterday. At the moment it is thought that he lost control of the car at high speed causing it to skid off the road and 100m down into a ditch before bursting into flames. The accident happened near the Ferrari factory in Maranello but both driver and passenger were pulled from the car before the flames killed them. This was apparently done by the owner of a nearby vinegar factory. Both are in critical condition in hospital being treated for major burns.
