Giz crash: the plot thickens

Gun magazine found nearby.

A week after former Gizmondo executive Stefan Eriksson's Enzo Ferrari was destroyed on a Californian highway, police have announced that a gun magazine found nearby may be connected to the crash.

According to the LA Times, detectives are attempting to determine whether the magazine is linked to the incident. They are looking to interview a person who they think was in the car with Eriksson - presumably the mysterious 'Dietrich', who Eriksson has previously claimed was driving at the time of the crash.

Sergeant Phil Brooks also told the LA Times that the vehicle was one of two Enzos imported into the US by Eriksson, along with a Mercedes SLR. Brooks said that police have not been able to find the correct papers for the car, meaning it was not "street legal" for driving on Californian roads.

Brooks added that police now believe the car was travelling at 162 miles per hour when it crashed, and not 120 mph as previously reported. The crash occurred when the Ferrari hit a bump in the road, causing it to fly through the air and smash into a power pole.

According to Brooks, officials from the Royal Bank of Scotland informed investigators that the bank may own the crashed Enzo. He also said that detectives are currently attempting to find out why Eriksson's Mercedes SLR had previously been reported stolen to Scotland Yard.

Brooks said that detectives have called Eriksson in for a further interview. The Royal Bank of Scotland declined to offer a statement, telling our sister site, "We don't normally comment on customers past or present."
