Ferrari Halved By Light Pole in Deadly Newport Beach Crash*
solo vehicle crash on Jamboree Road near Camelback Street in Newport Beach left the driver dead, the passenger injured and the red Ferrari they were in split in half, according to the Press-Telegram. "The Ferrari crashed into a light pole, causing it to topple onto the luxury Italian sports car [and] was split in half, its front portion crushed by the pole."
