The popular Bollywood actress “Gayatri Joshi” and her billionaire husband, Vikas Oberoi, were recently involved in a supercar crash in Sardinia, Italy. A video of their accident, which went viral online, showed the couple in a blue Lamborghini Huracan Spyder supercar crashing into a Ferrari. Fortunately, the Indian couple came out of the accident with minor injuries; however, the Swiss couple in the Ferrari died due to a rollover and fire. On further advancement of this case, it has now been reported that Vikas Oberoi is being investigated for “double road homicide,” and if found guilty, he could be jailed for 7 years.
Vikas Oberoi Under Investigation
According to reports from international media outlets, Vikas Oberoi, who was behind the steering wheel of the blue Lamborghini Huracan Spyder, could be facing a sentence of 7 years if he is prosecuted and found guilty by the Cagliari law authorities. The real estate and hospitality billionaire, who was along with his wife, Bollywood actress Gayatri Joshi, in the passenger seat of the supercar, crashed with a red Ferrari Portofino convertible during the Sardinia Supercar Tour.

A video of this entire incident has gone viral on the internet. In the video, several Lamborghini and Ferrari supercars are seen driving on a single-lane road on the island of Sardinia in Italy. First, a few supercars overtake a motorhome traveling in the same direction. Next, Vikas Oberoi and Gayatri Joshi also come up behind the same motorhome. Following them, Vikas also goes for the overtake; however, a Ferrari Portofino, driven by a Swiss man and his wife, attempts to overtake both the motorhome and the Lamborghini.
Unfortunately, Vikas Oberoi did not notice this speeding Ferrari, and it crashed into his Lamborghini, causing his Lamborghini to collide with the back of the motorhome. In the video, the Lamborghini can be seen hitting the motorhome so hard that it flips onto the road, and the Ferrari also crashes into it and flips. It was later reported that the Swiss couple were unable to exit the flipped Ferrari in time, resulting in their tragic death on the road.
Who Was Actually at Fault?
At the moment, Vikas Oberoi is under investigation by the authorities. However, the question arises as to who was actually at fault. From the video, as mentioned, several supercars can be seen overtaking the motorhome. Noticing them, Vikas also attempts to overtake the same motorhome. However, the Ferrari in the video can be observed coming at a higher speed with the ambition of overtaking both the Lamborghini and the motorhome simultaneously.
Upon closer examination, it mostly appears that the major fault in this incident lies with the Ferrari driver. However, careful observation reveals that Vikas was also unaware of this speeding Ferrari, and he could have waited. But as everything happened so quickly, the blame cannot be solely pinned on him. Vikas Oberoi, the managing director of Oberoi Constructions, one of the largest real estate firms in India, was with his wife, “Swades” movie actress Gayatri Joshi. They were both participating in the Sardinia Supercar Tour, an event organized by supercar owners where they drive from Teulada to Olbia.
