Car Crash Croatian Race Driver Crashes Ferrari and Kills Fashion Model

News concerning a car crash in Croatia has reached us over the weekend. 26-year-old Croatian racing driver Marin Čolak has crashed his Ferrari. The accident occured around 12:15 on Saturday on the A6 motorway, near junction Bosiljevo direction Rijeka.

The driver was seriously injured and his 20-year old female passenger Ivana Obad, a croatian fashion model, was killed in the accident. Čolak did survive the crash, because he didn’t use a safety belt and fell out of the car. He got medical attention on the scene and after that he was transfered to the Karlovac General Hospital.

There is no official information on the cause of accident, but it is speculated that Čolak was racing a black Nissan 350Z right before the accident and he “hooked” it, what caused the crash. The traces show that after the initial crash Čolak’s Ferrari hit safety barriers and slided uncontrolably for about 100 meters on the grass before it caught fire. Investigation is still ongoing. The Police has announced that they will file charges against the driver for unsafe lane changing and speeding.

Marin Čolak began to participate in races when he was very young in Germany and is the only Croatian who has driven in the WTCC. He raced in Formula Renault and Seat Leon Cupra Cup in 2008.

  1. Sad about what happened to the poor lady and the driver but why would you race a pathetic little 350Z with a Ferrari? Thats like having a footrace between me and Usain Bolt

  2. The owner of the 350Z holds croatian record as fastest on the nurburgring and second fastest on the Grobnik. The 350Z is tuned up, probably because of that he race him…
