SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The man who drove a $138,000 Maserati into a San Francisco Muni maintenance pit was reportedly an 21-year-old intern who was allegedly drunk at the time while driving his boss’ vehicle, according to published reports.
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 the driver told police he had permission from his boss to borrow the Maserati.
Police told the San Francisco Chronicle the driver failed a sobriety test and cited for suspicion of driving under the influence. The Maserati was later impounded.
