A motor home, a Mercedes-Benz C-Class wagon, a Porsche 911 Cabriolet, and a Bugatti Chiron were all involved in a car crash in Switzerland that caused damages worth $4 million. According to a statement released by Kanton Uri Police, the incident took place at the gorgeous Gotthard Pass in the Swiss Alps.
The crash was caused when the cars got tired of being behind the slow motor home. They decided to attempt to pass it to get back up to speed, reported the Daily Mail. When the Bugatti and the Porsche tried to overtake the motor home simultaneously they ended up crashing into one another.
After that, the Bugatti reportedly hit the Mercedes while the Porsche collided with the motor home.
According to Uri Police, the total damage of the accident came to 3.7million francs or around $4 million. “The Gotthard Pass road had to be temporarily closed for the rescue and rescue work. Several private towing services, the National Roads Office, the Uri ambulance service, and the Uri cantonal police were in action,” police said.
According to Car Buzz, the Porsche suffered the most serious damage in the accident. The Bugatti, estimated to be worth $3 million, saw its grille, front bumper, and hood damaged.
Thankfully the silver lining was there were no casualties in the crash. Though the driver of the Mercedes C-Class wagon was rushed to the hospital for his injuries. What a shame to see one small moment wipeout more than most people will make in their entire lives.
