A driver in a 1987 Chevy Suburban darted through a traffic light near Galveston, Texas this morning and struck a local developer in a Ferrari California. This occurred curiously close to where a certain Bugatti Veyron crashed. Anyone seen a low-flying pelican?


When you hear about a wreck occurring with a 71-year-old in a Ferrari your first guess is driver error, but in this case the driver who erred was the man carrying a family in his old Suburban. The poor Ferrari (and an F-150) was just a victim.

The Ferrari owner is a local developer who cashed out on his redevelopment of the Kemah Boardwalk and sold to restaurant mogul Tilman Fertitta who has made a habit of buying people's favorite restaurants and marginalizing them. The driver had to be extracted from the car but he's in good condition. Not so much for the California.
