At least he won the case! Lawyer in airport rush revealed as the owner of Toronto’s infamous $200K flooded Ferrari
Lawyer Howard Levitt took out an expensive advertisement for his commitment to his clients Monday night, when he abandoned his $200,000 Ferrari on a flooded Toronto street in order to make a hearing in Ottawa the next morning.
Levitt, a leading Canadian employment lawyer, was trying to make his way to Billy Bishop Airport during Monday’s record-breaking downfall in his 2010 silver Ferrari California when he ran into a literal, uh, sewage storm at the Lower Simcoe Street underpass in downtown Toronto.
“The rain is really pelting down … and I hit what appeared to be a puddle. What I did not know that moment was that there was a water main break that was rushing out raw sewage feet into the air and filling up the space in front of me,” Levitt told the National Post Wednesday. “I wasn’t able to pull back when I realized I was going into something deeper.”
“My attitude was, I have insurance, nobody’s sick, life goes on, and I do my job.” (Photo: Chris Young / The Canadian Press)
