Traumatised witnesses have described the horrifying moment a stolen Ferrari crashed in Australia, exploding into flames and killing the female passenger.
Police say the high-performance vehicle, worth over $500,000, was stolen from outside a café in west Perth.
Officers spotted the stolen sports car on Saturday morning. However, when they approached, the male driver decided to flee.
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.
The alleged driver remains in hospital under arrest with serious burns. Major crash officers and internal affairs are investigating the incident.
