A woman who was walking on a footbridge at the time of the crash said: ‘I saw a Ferrari heading from Powick and swerve across the carriageway. 

‘I heard the engine roar and my husband estimated it was going at least 70mph.

‘The driver narrowly missed one car but the second car, a white hatchback, couldn’t avoid him and they collided.

‘They both ended up on the grass verge.

‘People stopped and got out of their car to check the drivers were both OK.

‘The Ferrari driver appeared stuck for a while, before he was helped into an ambulance.

‘It was a scary one – I just hope everyone was alright and not seriously hurt.’

The road was closed for nearly an hour while the debris was cleared from the carriageway.
