Aston-ishing crash

A wealthy motorist in Moscow had a miraculous escape after destroying his luxury sports car in a high-speed crash.

On Tuesday night, the quarter-of-a-million dollar Aston Martin, which can top speeds of three hundred kilometers an hour, careered off a busy Moscow street and smashed into two kiosks. The once beautiful car was torn into two parts, and ended up a twisted wreck of mangled metal.

No one was killed in the crash, but the driver and two others were hurt.

The driver is thought to be a prominent restaurateur from Moscow. He is believed to have lost control while driving at a speed of around 150 kilometers an hour, but the cause of the accident has yet to be confirmed. It is not known whether he faces prosecution.
