The car was driven by Maciej Zientarksi, as found out by RMF FM. The known automobile journalist is in critical condition. His friend who was driving with him, Jaroslaw Zabieg, a journalist for Super Express did not survive.

Zientarski, son of a known automobile journalist and expert Wlodzimierz Zientarski, hosted (among others) the program V Max on Polsat digital cable channel and is co-creator of the show "The Passionate Ones". The tragedy took place at around 10pm on Pulawska Street. The Ferrari, driven by Maciej Zientarski, was launched off the ground on an uneven part of the street where the speed limit is 50 km/h. The car, thrown off its path, went across a few meters of grass and ended up hitting the supporting beam for the overpass leading to Ursynow.

The car separated into two parts. One of them was completely burned. The bodies of the journalists were thrown from the car. The Super Express journalist, Jaroslaw Zabiega, died on the spot. Maciej Zientarski is fighting for his life in a hostpital and is undergoing multiple surgeries.

Tomas Glowacki, the press agent for the Warsaw fire department informed us that two engines were sent to fight the fire.

"The patient received multiple injures. I just cant tell you what his outcome will be. The case is dynamic, it could change at any moment" said Dr. Andrzej Chmura. "We don't ourselves know what can now occur." He added.

Dr. Chmura said: "We are trying to do everything that needs to be done. The operation was in the area of his stomach cavity and the patient will require at least one more surgery. He has spine injuries, but we will get to those after we stabilize him."
