A wealthy motorist in Moscow had a miraculous escape after destroying his luxury sports car in a high-speed crash. The $250,000 Aston Martin which can top speeds of 300 km/h (about 180 mph) careened off a busy Moscow street. On the slippery road, the speeding car left the ground, smashed two kiosks, and ended in a pile of scrap metal. Amazingly, no one died, and only two people were hurt. The driver will get off relatively scot-free, the worst punishment he faces under Russian law is the temporary withdrawal of his license.
