Fer­rari death boy was ‘on a spin for treat’

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY VICKY SMITH

A BOY of 13 killed in a Fer­rari crash was be­ing taken for a spin af­ter ask­ing if he could sit in­side, a fam­ily friend claimed yes­ter­day.

Car dealer Matt Cob­den was driv­ing the £1.2mil­lion F50 when it swerved off the road into a fence.

The young­ster’s dis­traught mum heard the crash and tried in vain to re­sus­ci­tate her dy­ing son.

A pal posted on­line: “The mother and child were at a car deal­er­ship. The kid saw the F50 and asked the garage owner to sit in it. He replied that he could do one bet­ter and take him for a drive.

“Less than a minute later, the mum heard a smash.”

Dad-of-one Matt, 37, of Wal­ton-on-Thames, Sur­rey, was in­jured in the crash near his garage at Hook, Hants.

The boy, from Winch­ester, has not been named. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
