The outing Sunday of luxury sportscar enthusiasts in Japan ended in a 14-car highway pileup, valued at more than $1 million, the Associated Press reported.

Police told the AP they believe the crash was caused when one of the Ferraris tried to change lanes and hit the median barrier.

No one was seriously injured.
