Aston Martin Race On Highway 101 Sends Nissan Z Nearly Plunging Into San Francisco Bay

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – It's like something out of the movie "Fast and Furious". Two expensive sports cars race on Highway 101 with one car nearly ending up in the San Francisco Bay.

California Highway Patrol said the driver of a gold Nissan Z was racing a white Aston Martin, which start at $118,650 and can go well over $200,000.

At some point, the Nissan lost control, veered off the road and landed on the rock barrier at the edge of the Bay.
