Two tourists lost their lives in Italy during a supercar tour when a Ferrari and a Lamborghini collided with a camper van. This collision occurred as both high-performance vehicles attempted to overtake the camper van simultaneously, causing it to overturn on a rural road in Sardinia.
Video footage from October 2nd shows a blue Lamborghini trying to pass a white camper van by crossing into the oncoming lane. Subsequently, a red Ferrari accelerates alongside the Lamborghini, leading to a collision that propels both supercars in different directions toward the camper van.
The Ferrari caught fire, and the couple inside, identified as Melissa Krautli, 63, and Markus Krautli, 67, from Switzerland, lost their lives in the blaze. The Lamborghini occupants, reportedly from India, were unharmed and seen signaling their well-being.

According to Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera, the couple from Switzerland had departed from Forte Village and were en route to Mores at the time of the accident.
