Very nasty. I was almost expecting that to be fatal for the gullwing driver but apparently not. Here's what google translate has to say about it:
Incident along the route of the Mille Miglia in progress in Tuscia in the early hours of this morning.

For reasons still under investigation, two cars, classic car, Mercedes Gull Wing, and a BMW, collided at kilometer 9 of Cimina.

Two people were injured in the accident.

Two ambulances on site, the traffic police for the relief and firefighters. Injured both drivers of the two cars: a German pilot and a 35 year-old, who was going to Rome aboard the BMW. Neither of them is serious. They were brought to code yellow and green to the hospital emergency Belcolle.

The closed section of road affected by the accident, to allow the pads. The traffic is diverted towards Viterbo until the junction for Vitorchiano.

In Ronciglione direction, however, the traffic is diverted to the alternative for Soriano.

The news here say, that noone was hurt and it was the son of "Sixt" who was driving (hire car company, also in some places in Australia present). For 100-150.000 it's as new again ...

You missed a zero :laughing6: ..... but as all new parts are available and it's one of the 29 alloy cars it will be restored.
