A top Bollywood star was pictured visibly distraught at the roadside after she was involved in a deadly fireball crash between two supercars and a motorhome.
Gayatri Joshi was seen sitting on the tarmac next to the wreckage of a blue Lamborghini that was allegedly being driven by her billionaire husband Vikas Oberoi when the smash happened.
Terrifying footage filmed by another driver captured the fatal collision on the Italian island of Sardinia on Monday.
The video shows the Lamborghini overtaking in a convoy of luxury vehicles en-route to a supercar event before attempting to go past an RV.
As the Lamborghini veers out onto the other side of the single-lane road, a red Ferrari also approaches at speed from behind to overtake.
Both supercars collide with each other and then smash into the RV, causing it to flip over as a huge plume of dust kicks up from the ground.

The Ferrari overturned and immediately burst into flames, trapping Swiss couple Markus and Melissa Krautli inside, who tragically both died in the crash.
Meanwhile the Lamborghini careered off the side of the carriageway but passenger Joshi, 46, and her partner Oberoi, 54, miraculously managed to escape unscathed.
However, they were both visibly shaken after the crash, according to local reports, and images show Ms Joshi slumped on the floor sobbing as she stared at the scene of utter devastation.
Oberoi, who is a hospitality and real estate tycoon, was seen with his hands on his hips next to emergency workers and other passers by.
Italian prosecutors in Cagliari have since opened an investigation into a ‘double road homicide’ following the tragedy, reports MailOnline.
If charged and found guilty, Oberoi could face up to seven years in prison for the deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Krautli, from Wallisellen, near Zurich.
A couple from Selva di Val Gardena, aged 61 and 62, who were travelling in the motorhome were injured and taken to hospital.
Lorenzo M, who was in the overturned RV, told Italian news outlet L’Unione Sarda that both he and his wife were able to crawl out from between the seats to escape.
He said: ‘We were lying sideways in our seats. For a moment we were silent in disbelief.
‘Then I looked into my wife’s eyes and asked her if she was okay. She nodded. When we came out we thought we were in hell.’
Bollywood blockbuster Swades actor Gayatri told India’s Free Press Journal: ‘Vikas and I are in Italy. We met with an accident here (multiple-car collision)…
‘With God’s grace, we both are absolutely fine.’
Horrifying pictures of the aftermath showed the crumpled, burnt out Ferrari lying upside down.
The mangled Lamborghini came to a stop a short distance from the road in shrubbery and trees at the bottom of a slope.
According to local media reports, the luxury vehicles were taking part in the Sardinia Supercar Tour, which is a gathering of sports cars, starting in Teulada and ending in Olbia.
The crash happened on the 195 Sulcitana state road in the commune of San Giovanni Suergiu in South Sardinia.
Elsewhere in Italy this week, an ‘apocalyptic’ crash killed 20 people after a bus plunged from a raised road and burst into flames.
