Dead Ferrari driver had a mistress?
The wife of Ma Chi, the driver who died in a traffic accident on Saturday after his red Ferrari crashed into a taxi, wants to know the identity of the woman who was in the car with him.
Lianhe Wanbao reported Sunday that the distraught wife, 29-year-old Ting Ting, had asked reporters about the female passenger, who is said to be a young woman in her 20s.
She suffered from serious head injuries in the crash.
Ting Ting said her husband was an introverted person who liked to drive at night as there was less traffic.
Ma Chi had just returned from a trip to Hong Kong, and liked to meet up with friends after business trips.
When Ting Ting learnt of the accident and that there was a young, female passenger in the car, she was surprised.
She asked who the female passenger was, and which hospital she was warded at.
However, she said she trusted her husband because he was a loving father and husband.
She also said that it was normal for someone to send a friend home after meeting up with them.
Ting Ting said she did not expect such an accident to happen so soon after their wedding anniversary.
The couple are expecting another child.
The accident had occurred in the wee hours of Saturday at the junction of Rochor Road and Victoria Street.
It involved a red Ferrari driven by Ma Chi, a taxi and a motorcycle. Two people were killed and three others were injured.
Witnesses say that the Ferrari crashed into a taxi when it ran a red light, causing the taxi to hit a passing motorcycle.
The impact was so hard that the taxi's engine was found 30m away from the vehicle, reported Shin Min Daily News.
Ma Chi, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene by the paramedics.
The cabby, in his 40s, was brain dead and died on Sunday night.
The motorcyclist, in his 20s, sustained spinal injuries.
