Howrah/Kolkata: A man was on Sunday killed and his friend seriously injured when the sports car they were travelling in hit a divider and turned turtle at Domjur area of Howrah district.

The Ferrari California T, which was coming at a high speed from Dankuni, hit the divider while approaching a bridge on National Highway 6 at Domjur, an hour's drive from Kolkata, and landed upside down on the ground with a thud, a senior police officer said.

"Prima facie it seems that Shibaji Roy, a man in his early 30s, was driving the car. His friend Ashna Surana (21) was seated next to him," he said.

Both of them were pulled out of the mangled vehicle by local people with the help of police officers.

"While Roy was declared dead on his arrival at a private hospital in Kolkata, Surana was admitted with serious injuries," the officer said.

According to the police, the victims went to Dankuni to have food along with a few of their friends as they used to on a regular basis on Sunday morning. It was learnt that Roy's friends who accompanied him were in other cars on their way back home.

The Ferrari California T is a two-door, hardtop convertible sports car that makes over 552 horse power.

The way the car was damaged indicates a terrible crash as it hit the side of the road, smashing the driver's door and the entire front was completely crushed. A metal pipe, about 6 inches thick, was seen to have pierced the bonnet of the vehicle.
