Last time the story involved a Ferrari Enzo and a crazy Swede, this time we’ve got a Testarossa being driven by a CHP officer. Last time there were mystery drivers, transit police badges and handguns and everyone surprised that no body died, this time, well, not. The accident happened yesterday at 3434 cornell rd in Agoura [map] and neither the driver, Officer Derek Midollo, 39, or his passenger, David Bjorklund survived. The LA Times has the story and photos of the car, NBC4 has an update and some video and we have a first hand, day after, man on the street report from Mike Outmesguine who lives out in that next of the woods. Mike writes:
“This isn’t the S-turn I thought it was. (that turn is actually 500 feet north)
But right around here is an unpredictable elevation change on what is otherwise a short straightaway. At 45 mph this is a little whupdido down and up. Much faster and your wheels get light. Speculation, but at high speeds it would probably get pretty floaty.
I learned to drive in these hills. This particular dip was a special experience late summer nights heading up to Mulholland. A Ferrari would almost have to take it fast.”
