Police officer was driver of flipped Ferrari

A California Highway Patrol officer was the driver and owner of the 1993 Ferrari Testarossa that crashed in Los Angeles yesterday. Derek Midollo, 39, died at the scene, as did his passenger, David Bjorklund, reports the LA Times. The Ferrari went out of control on a residential street, flipped over, and hit a pole, according to witnesses. Midollo was an officer from Woodland Hills and was a member of the special enforcement teams used to enforce speed limits on hillside roads, according to ABC7. "I heard it coming. I heard the engine revving high," one witness told the Associated Press. Police officials told ABC they were trying to determine if speed was a "factor." Our perspective: When a Ferrari ends up on its roof, speed is always a factor.
