Perazzini in the Ferrari was completely asleep at the wheel to not see the Davidson in the Toyota coming...I would have Perazzini strung up by the nearest tree...

How could he have snoozed Davidson coming up on him?

A Lily Tomlin line comes to mind: "I tried reality, but I found it too confining."

Frightening crash. Reminded me of the flying Mercedes at Le Mans years ago. But the Mercedes was unassisted.

Just horrifying. Did Perazzini walk away? Davidson has a broken back. I hope he recovers fully.

Rather than walking away, I'd say that Perazzini ran away. He is probably in hiding under an assumed name.

Perhaps he'll claim Sicilian Alzheimers; "Where he forgets everything, except whom he has to kill.'
