2 Men in Ferrari Crash on PCH Identified

Passenger Basil Max Price III, 23, of Pomona died at the scene of the Sunday morning collision and 24-year-old driver Vladimir Skvortsov of Upland remains in critical condition.

The names of the two men involved in the Sunday morning Ferrari crash that left one of them dead and the other critically injured have been released.

The passenger, Basil Max Price III, 23, of Pomona, died at the scene, Coroner's Investigator Dana Bee told City News Service.   

Paramedics took the driver, 24-year-old Vladimir Skvortsov, of Upland, to UCLA Medical Center in critical condition.

The collision was reported at about 1:25 a.m.

Pacific Coast Highway reopened Sunday morning near Sunset Boulevard, after portions had been closed due to a severed power pole caused by the crash.

Part of the Ferrari, which was split in half as a result of the collision, fell to the beach below, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Matt Spence told Patch.

City News Service contributed to this report.

What strikes me about this incident, and the one involving the Enzo, is how apparently crashworthy Ferraris are. Most of us really know nothing about high speed driving and that is one reason why people crash these very powerful cars. California has a policy of licensing almost anybody and I think that is a big part of the problem. My sympathies to the local residents who must feel like they live next to the Le Mans racetrack sometimes. It seems to me that most fatal accidents happen to everyday people in very ordinary cars who lose concentration, speed, drink alcohol, etc. I've never been hit by an Italian supercar, but Lord knows I've been clobbered by many Pintos, pickups, small sedans, and even once by an off-duty police officer!

It's odd that a 23 and 24 yr old person would be driving a ferrari
