SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The man who drove a $138,000 Maserati into a San Francisco Muni maintenance pit was reportedly an intern who was allegedly drunk at the time while driving his boss’ vehicle, according to published reports.
Police identified the man behind the wheel of the 2011 Gran Turismo as 21-year-old Dennis John Hanrahan of Dallas, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
San Francisco Muni reported the Maserati was traveling at ‘a high rate of speed’ into the Potrero Maintenance yard and became wedged into one of the pits on May 20.
The incident was not publicized by Muni nor the police department at the time. SF Weekly first reported the incident after it obtained a photo of the wrecked Maserati.
SF Weekly reported Hanrahan told police he had permission from his boss to borrow the Maserati.
Police told the Chronicle that Hanrahan failed a sobriety test and cited for suspicion of driving under the influence. The Maserati was later impounded.
