Police say that ten people were rushed to the hospital but none of the victims had serious injuries.
reports the crash happened after the 60 year old driver of the Ferrari leading the convoy of sports cars miscalculated and lost control on a wet uphill bend while trying to overtake another vehicle. The Ferrari hit the median and the other cars coming up behind began running into each other in turn leaving a trailing wreck of luxury cars in what some have described as the "world's most expensive car crash."
According to The Blaze
, the convoy consisted of a group of car enthusiasts heading to Hiroshima from Kyushu.
The Chugoku Expressway was closed to traffic for six hours while emergency services and the police cleared up the about $4 million wreckage.
Other supercars involved in the almost exclusively Italian and German high-end sports car crash, according to World Car Fans
, was a Japanese Nissan Skyline GT-R. The Ferraris involved in the smash were two F430s, two Ferrari 360 Modenas, two Ferrari F355s, two Ferrari F512s, a Lamborghini Diablo and two Mercedes Benz sports cars.
