Car Crash Warps Into Wild Goose Chase

This story keeps on getting weirder. The crash of a rare Ferrari Enzo is odd enough but as the story morphs and twists it is the stuff of Internet legend.

The car's owner is Stefan Ericksson, founder of the failed Net site Gizmondo. He told authorities that it was being driven by a man he knew only as Dietrich who then bolted into the California hills. Witnesses claimed the Ferrari was racing a Mercedes SLR, a clip for a Glock was found, badges were flashed and Homeland Security invoked. Very little of the story is true.

Check out the full story, so far, at the Independent via Fark.
