Officers spotted the stolen sports car on Saturday morning. However, when they approached, the male driver decided to flee.

A stolen Ferrari has caught fire after hitting a metal barrier in West Perth, Australia, leaving the car thief critically injured and a female passenger dead, according to a Western Australia police spokesperson as quoted by ABC news.

Unfortunately, the high-speed getaway was short-lived, as he smashed into a guard railing a short distance away.

The spokesperson said that law enforcement attempted to approach the stolen vehicle after spotting it on Vincent Street, but the car accelerated and crashed approximately 100 metres away before bursting into flames.

"Everyone who was in the immediate area is gonna have memories of this," witness Max Di Lello told 7 News.

Emergency services raced to the scene but were unable to free her, and she was consumed by the flames.

Anyone with information regarding this crash, or who saw the Ferrari involved prior to the crash, is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report the information online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au

"We heard pops and cracks and everything. I dont think I saw anything flying but it was definitely the scariest thing Ive ever seen," Di Lello added.

Police officers observed the luxury car stationary and as they approached to speak to the occupants, the vehicle accelerated away and caught fire around 100 metres down the road.

The alleged driver remains in hospital under arrest with serious burns. Major crash officers and internal affairs are investigating the incident.

The incident occurred at 11.30am on Vincent Street in North Perth, around an hour after police received reports of a Ferrari being stolen from outside a West Perth cafe.
