A catastrophic car crash occurred on the island of Sardinia, Italy, resulting in a fiery collision involving a red Ferrari and a blue Lamborghini.

The incident, which happened on Monday, October 2, was triggered by the two luxury cars attempting to overtake a large white van, leading to a collision that flipped all three vehicles. Tragically, the wealthy occupants of the Ferrari were incinerated at the scene, while the Lamborghini driver now faces a potential seven-year prison sentence for road homicide.

The Lamborghini that sparked this disastrous accident was driven by Vikas Oberoi, an Indian entrepreneur with a net worth of US$3.7 billion, and his wife, Bollywood actress Gayatri Joshua.

The couple were participating in the Supercar Tour held in Sardinia when they attempted to overtake the van. Unbeknownst to them, the Ferrari behind them had the same intention, leading to a fateful collision in the next second.
