The driver of the car escaped with only minor cuts and bruises.
The South Yorkshire Police Operational Support on Thursday posted pictures of the charred remains of a Ferrari, saying that the car's driver got 'very lucky.' Two photos shared on SYP Operational Support's Facebook page show a brand new Ferrari that had 'left the carriageway and burst in to flames', according to their post. Also according to the post, the driver sustained only minor cuts and bruises - a fact that has prompted many surprised reactions on social media, given the condition of his car.
The accident took place on July 27 in South Yorkshire, UK. The Facebook post confirms that over-speeding was not the reason behind the crash of the brand new Ferrari 430 Scuderia. It also adds that the owner had picked up the car just an hour ago.

On Facebook, the post has been shared almost 4,000 times, with many people wondering how the crash happened and others saying they're happy the driver escaped.
SYP Operational Support says that 'road conditions were wet at the time', which may have led to the crash. "Over the past couple of weeks there has been a number of collisions where driving styles have not reflected the road & weather conditions. Please take more care!" they request in their Facebook post.Click for more trending news
