It also ended in tragedy.
Car accidents like this don't happen regularly. Quite honestly, this one shouldn't have happened at all. And it ended in tragedy. According to CBS News, the driver of a Porsche in New Jersey lost control while driving at high speed and somehow crashed into the second story of a building. That's right, the Porsche went airborne. Both the driver and passenger, male and in their early twenties, were killed. No one else was injured.
Exact details of the crash are still unknown because investigators are still working the scene, but the Toms River police confirmed they received a call at approximately 6:30 a.m. Sunday morning claiming a vehicle crashed into a building where several businesses, including a real estate agency, are located.
The Porsche was traveling northbound and presumably at high speed when the driver lost control and hit a curb, which thrust the car into the air. Rescue services had to perform a "technical rescue" to get the car's two occupants out. Fresh skid marks are still visible on the road outside the building as investigators piece together a timeline of the Porsche's final moments.
The car was finally removed from the building several hours later with a crane and, judging by the aftermath, it's hard to tell which Porsche model it is. Judging by its size and front fascia design, it appears to be an early Cayman or Boxster.
Again, the damage is so bad it requires a sharp eye to make out it's a Porsche. The message for everyone is to drive carefully and responsibly. If you drive a powerful car with track and performance capabilities, use common sense when out on public roads. These two men paid for their mistake with their lives.
