Remember that horrific supercar crash in Japan two years ago? The one that destroyed more than $4 million worth of Ferraris?

Well after years of investigating, Japanese police could be about to lay charges.

Authorities have revealed speed was a primary cause of the accident, which saw eight exotic Ferraris, three Mercedes-Benzs and a Lamborghini totalled after the lead driver, aged 61, lost control of his car.

A Toyota Prius driving in the opposite direction was also involved in the incident.

In total 10 drivers, aged 38-61, will be charged on suspicion of breaking traffic laws.
