Gayatri Joshi and her husband were reportedly in the dark blue Lamborghini that first crosses the solid white line in a bid to overtake a campervan. Simultaneously, a speeding red Ferrari, also driving in the opposite lane, tries to overtake both the Lamborghini and the van, resulting in both the Italian supercars colliding into each other as well as the van, overturning the latter! A couple from Selva di Val Gardena, aged 61 and 62, who were travelling in the campervan were injured and taken to hospital.

It is pretty clear that the high-end supercars, including the one that the Bollywood actress and her husband were riding in, were breaking rules and endangering their lives by driving recklessly. While the red Ferrari seems to be the main cause of the accident, the blue Lamborghini was also at fault for trying to overtake in a no overtaking zone.
Do note that investigation by the local police is underway, with our report solely being based on the camera footage that is available with us for now. It is yet unclear if any other factors were also involved which led to the crash.
Moreover, a solid line on the road means that one cannot overtake the vehicle ahead of them considering that it is a two-way road. The driver isn’t supposed to change lanes in this situation either. TOI Auto urges its readers to follow all traffic rules and not get involved in such acts that put not only yours but lives of other road users in danger.
