An auto shop owner in Sanibel totaled his customer's Porsche when he took it out for "diagnostics," hitting speeds as high as 164 mph and flipping the car on a road shoulder, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Kenneth R. Kasten, 50, escaped without injury from the crash, which occurred on a curve by the Sanibel Tollbooth around 6 a.m. The 2008 Porsche Boxster suffered $50,000 in damage. It came to rest upside-down on the shoulder of McGregor Boulevard, east of the toll booth.
Kasten was charged with willful and wreckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash.
