Forest creatures owe Joerg Daecher a huge solid. It happened in Lower Saxony, Germany, where the 53-year-old businessman was driving home on Friday in his sweet 1995 Ferrari F512M (the last Testarossa). But a spiky hedgehog appeared in the road, Daecher swerved to avoid it, and well … crash!
Maybe it was the Easter spirit or Daecher’s love for animals, but rather than hitting the creature, the man swerved, lost control of the Italian supercar and ended up crashing into the steel barrier.
The German police said that neither Daecher nor the hedgehog were hurt but the Ferrari suffered extensive damages.
How extensive? About £30,000, according to the Sun. The car overall is worth about £85,000.
Yeah, I know that isn’t technically the exact Ferrari in question in the photo there, nor is that actually a hedgehog. I did the best I could: it’s hard to get them to cover their eyes like that.
