LONDON: A businessman has been found guilty at Winchester Crown Court of causing the death by careless driving of 13-year-old Alexander Worth in a crash involving a £1.2 million Ferrari F50.

Matthew Cobden, 39, was convicted by a majority verdict of 10 to 2 following the trial which heard he lost control of the Ferrari F50 on August 22, 2016.

The court was told that the supercar ‘accelerated uncontrollably’  in a farm lane in North Warnborough, Hampshire, causing it to flip and throw the pair, who were not wearing seatbelts, from the vehicle.
