The Wreck of the Ferrari Enzo (whither, Gordon Lightfoot?) has been cleared from the Pacific Coast Highway, but the mystery remains: Was the driver the Stefan Eriksson? Nope, you've never heard of him unless you've got one foot in the geekosphere and the other on a bullet train to Stockholm. That Stefan "Fat Steffy" Eriksson is an erstwhile executive of Gizmondo, the ill-fated handheld gaming device that sent many a stockholder scurrying up something tall to jump from, and may or may not still have a future. Swedes know him as an alleged counterfeiter with equally alleged ties to Sweden's Uppsala mafia.

From KTLA:

The driver jumped out of the wreckage and ran into the canyon above, evading a three-hour search by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department helicopter and a mountain search-and-rescue team.

Sheriff's investigators identified him as 44-year-old Stefan Eriksson, a Bel-Air resident. Officials are trying to determine whether he is the noted Swedish game designer whose firm, perhaps not surprisingly, was involved with car-racing themed video games.

TG Daily's Aaron McKenna says of Gizmondo, "In the past dot-com's were criticised for lavish spending on frivolous items, but rarely have we seen a company then and since that has had so much dodgy cash flying about." Not Dodge, Ferrari. Allegedly.
