STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A rare Ferrari Enzo sports car has been heavily damaged in a crash on Interstate 95.

State police tell the Stamford Advocate the car was being driven by a technician for Miller Motorcars, a Greenwich-based luxury car dealership, when it crashed on an interstate entrance ramp on Monday morning.

Police say the 650-horsepower car began to fishtail on the northbound entrance ramp, struck the a bridge wall, then spun across three lanes of traffic and crashed into the center divider.

The driver and a passenger escaped serious injury.

Ferrari built fewer than 400 of the cars, which are each valued at more than $600,000.

Michael Fux of New Jersey, a multimillionaire who made his fortune in mattresses, owns this one.

The dealership declined to comment on the accident.

    Law enforcement officials from coast to coast say street gangs are shying away from wearing their colors and are covering up or even altering their tattoos to avoid detection by police.  Hartford, Connecticut, Police Sgt. Johnmichael O'Hare says gone are the days when the Bloods wore red from head to toe. All you'll see now, he says, is maybe a red handkerchief sticking out of a back pocket.
