Luxury crash in Russian capital

A new luxury Mercedes, yet to be launched, has already suffered its first road accident in Moscow.

The SLS Gullwing crashed into another car head-on. It's still a mystery why, because witnesses say the road was fairly clear at the time of the accident.

Police say the car was being driven by a young woman when the accident occurred. However, the car is going nowhere now because it has been written off by insurance companies.

The new Mercedes will cost about 180 thousand euros when it is introduced in Europe later this year.

It's not scheduled to be sold in America until 2011.
