Woman smashed up $1million worth of luxury cars

In Monte Carlo in Monaco earlier this week, a large crowd gathered to gawk, but it wasn't because of a Grand Prix race or a celebrity. A woman driving a Bentley Azure - sticker price $383,000 - crashed into a $95,000 Mercedes Benz.

But if that's not enough, the unidentified driver also hit a Ferrari 430 - priced at $270,000 - a Porsche 911 - $95,000 - and last, but not least, an Aston Martin Rapide - worth $220,000 - in the city square near the posh Place du Casino.

The accident caused such a mash-up that the woman in the Bentley couldn't open her car's doors.

The Daily Mail reports the crash is estimated to cost more than $65,000, with the Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin requiring new front wings and bumpers. The U.K. paper reports the Bentley will need the same repairs, and a new door.

I think most likely the woman will claim the damages from her car insurance. That'll be an expensive lesson to learn and burns a hole in the pocket. If I were to be in her shoe, I will have sleepless nights and I wouldn't know how to explain to my furious husband.
