According to the reports available online, the accident happened on a rural road in Sardinia. In the video circulating online, we can see a campervan in the front. Many colorful sports cars and supercars are seen right behind the white campervan. When compared to the supercars, the campervan was obviously moving at a very slow speed. All these cars are driven on a very narrow piece of road. We can see a two-wheeler passing in the opposite direction moments before the crash.
We see a Lamborghini trying to overtake the campervan. Another supercar ahead of the Lamborghini just did that. Gayatri and her husband were in this Lamborghini. As they were about to overtake the campervan, we see a Ferrari trying to do the same. The Ferrari driver was probably attempting to overtake the campervan before the Lamborghini in which Gayatri and her husband were traveling. The Ferrari crashed into the Lamborghini and it hit the campervan. The campervan can be seen losing balance and flipping over onto the side of the road. It looks like the Lamborghini violently hit the underbody of the van. Unfortunately, the Ferrari also overturned and caught fire.
The couple traveling in the Ferrari, Melissa Krautli, 63, and Markus Krautli, 67, from Switzerland, lost their lives in the crash. Gayatri and her husband survived the crash with minor injuries. Gayatri told The Free Press Journal, “Vikas and I are in Italy. We met with an accident here (multiple-car collision)… With God’s grace, we both are absolutely fine.” A couple from Selva di Val Gardena, aged 61 and 62, who were traveling in the campervan, were injured and taken to the hospital. After hitting the campervan, the Lamborghini Huracan also lost control and crashed into the side of the road. The whole incident was recorded by a person who was traveling in a car behind these supercars. According to the reports, the remains of all three vehicles have been seized, and authorities have initiated an investigation into this matter.
It is clear from the video that the accident happened because of the supercar owners’ fault. The Ferrari driver was too eager to overtake, while the Lamborghini driver failed to notice the car behind him. Both of them were trying to overtake the same vehicle at the same time on a very narrow road. The cars were participating in the Sardinia Supercar Tour, an event where luxury car owners parade from Teulada to Olbia, showcasing their high-end vehicles. Gayatri’s husband, Vikas Oberoi, is the Managing Director of Oberoi Constructions, a popular real estate firm in India.
