A supercar crash in Japan may have netted over $1 milli... A supercar crash in Japan may have netted over $1 million in damage (NTV)
A highway jaunt to Hiroshima for car buffs in Japan over the weekend quickly turned into a costly mash-up, according to the Associated Press: The damage adds up to more than $1 million.

Eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini, and two Mercedes were wrecked in the 14-car crash.

According to police reports, a driver's risky lane change began a domino effect. He ricocheted off the median barrier, causing his fellow supercar drivers to crash into each other when they tried to get out of the way.

The network NTV aired footage of the crash, which shows the vehicles far beyond a state of repair. Luckily, no one was seriously injured, according to the police in Yamaguchi prefecture.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

      Idiots, all of them. There is a time and place for everything. Looks like these guys do not have the skill to operate a golf cart properly, let alone cars like these. I find (in most cases, not all) that the more expensive the car the less the owner is truely a real car buff, just money showing off. I know Ferrari owners that know next to nothing about their cars, except how to clean it and brag about a $5,000 fluid change. I just laugh at them as brag about getting screwed. A shame to let so many idots own great pieces of equipment.

      I am in the 80s and the doctor recommend that I not drive a car because other people in their 80s have become dizzy while driving and hit a store front or other pedestrians and cars and end up in court being sued. So I take a taxi to visit the store or bank or hospital. Actually, I figured it costs more to operate and drive a car than it does to use a taxi over the course of a year. It works out pretty well, and the taxi driver is willing to carry groceries up to the front door if you give him an extra tip. I do see other people in their 70s and 80s driving cars--and this is their problem. They can do what they want--but it is risky in that they may have a sudden stroke or become dizzy while driving their car. So they should take a taxi or use a hospital van if available.

        I'm fine with people in their 70s or above not driving, as most of them go under the speed limit. As long as it isn't a law.

      And I can almost guarantee that those who drove all those extreme high priced cars, they more than likely too, DID NOT CARE if they crashed their expensive cars. Many wealthy people not only abuse resources all around the world, but also abuse all the toys they have and continue to show themselves as no more than destructive spoiled rotten children of the Earth...

      Thank God there were no Aston Martins or Bentleys involved!

        There were several Astons in the pack, but the drivers (non-Asian) had the skill to go around the other cars.
