A horrible accident involving a Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder occurred in Beijing, leaving the driver dead and his two passengers seriously injured — both female.

While that may not be groundbreaking news in and of itself, the Chinese government is moving quickly to censor any internet searches involving the word “Ferrari” as a result of the accident.

It’s believed that the man behind the wheel of the 458 was the illegitimate son of Jia Qinglin, member of the Politburo Standing Committee (one of China’s leading Communist Parties). Details of the crash are quickly being deleted from the Internet in addition to the censorship of the keyword search.

Regardless of who was behind the wheel, the wreck is devastating and we hope the passengers make a speedy recovery.
