Griffin Unscathed From Ferrari Crash

Comedian EDDIE GRIFFIN escaped from a car crash unscathed yesterday (26MAR07) after smashing a rare $1.5 million (GBP769,230) sports car into a wall on a California racetrack. The NORBIT star, 38, was practicing for a charity race on the Irwindale Speedway to promote his upcoming film REDLINE, when he lost control of the red Ferrari Enzo and ploughed it into a concrete barrier. Video footage of the accident shows the Ferrari - which belonged to Redline's executive producer DANIEL SADEK - screeching before it ricocheted off the barrier, leaving the car damaged beyond repair. After the incident, Griffin joked, "UNDERCOVER BROTHER's (a previous movie character of Griffin's) good at karate and all the rest of that, but the brother can't drive!" The film's publicist, WENDY ZOCKS says, "He walked away completely unscratched, but probably a little shaken." And while SADEK is thankful the actor survived the incident, he is devastated his "dream car" got written off in the process. He laments, "I'm glad Eddie came out of the crash OK, but my dream car got destroyed. "I went to my trailer for about 15 minutes and I thought, 'There's people dying every day. A lot of worse things are happening in the world.'" Only 400 Ferrari Enzos, made between 2002 and 2004, exist in the world.
