Ferrari crash information hushed up in China: Who really crashed a black Ferrari 458 Italia sportscar in the consumerist Chinese communist coverup

Update: The 2012 March 18th Ferrari 458 Spider crash in Beijing’s North Fourth Ring Road on Baofusi bridge at 4am now sees Ling Gu, son of president Hu Jintao’s chief-of-staff(Ling Jihua) at the wheel. While the black Ferrari 458 Spider crash into a wall saw the supercar split in two, Ling Gu died at the wheel, and two young women passengers who were seriously injured have been identified as Minzu University in Beijing students as per South China Morning Post. A matter of contention has always been how the son of a Communist Party official on an economic salary managed to get a Ferrari as a ride. The latest development on the political front sees Ling Jihua transferred to a new job opening.

Not only is information regarding the Ferrari crash missing but even the word ‘Ferrari’ seems to have disappeared from websites after news of a Ferrari crash killed a man in China.  The incident occurred on Sunday in Haidian district, Beijing and according to newspaper reports two female occupants were also seriously injured in the crash.

As per photos posted online, the Ferrari in question, a Ferrari 458 Italia sportscar was ripped in half while the engine burst into flames.  The two seater Ferrari sportscar with three occupants was allegedly being driven by the son of a leading Communist Party leader.  One of the female occupants suffered head injuries and a fractured leg.  Both women are currently under treatment at an Intensive Care Centre.

Search online found that the word Ferrari itself was removed overnight from the Chinese microblog site Sina Weibo as well as other web portals raising doubts on as to who the deceased driver could be. Weibo is China’s equivalent of Twitter.  It is used by a number of people in China to express their feelings, criticize government policies and vent their anger over any occurrences in the country.
