The exact cause of the crash is still a bit hazy at this stage. As far as we know, the Nissan GT-R, which featured a Switzer P800 tune, veered off the road and landed in a big drain pipe ditch, upside down. The occupants escaped without serious injury.

As for the C 63 AMG, the driver decided to pull over to help the unfortunate GT-R passengers. Due to the high temperatures in California at the moment, especially in the more eastern areas, the Mercedes-Benz burst into flames. The occupants escaped without injury.
