In an event to raise money for charity, comedian Eddie Griffin ended up costing someone $1.5 million.

On Monday, March 26, the "Undercover Brother" star was practicing for a charity race to promote his upcoming film "Redline" when he smashed a Ferrari Enzo into a concrete wall at the Irwindale Speedway, reports TMZ.com.

Although Griffin was "doing OK" after being taken away in an ambulance, the car didn't fare as well. The Enzo, of which only 400 were made between 2002 and 2004, was wrecked. The car was owned by "Redline" executive producer Daniel Sadek.

In footage on TMZ, the car can be seen taking a curve too quickly with tires squealing before it hit the barrier. The event was to raise money for the "Race for a Cause."

Besides "Undercover Brother," Griffin, a stand-up comedian, has also appeared in the two "Deuce Bigalow" films, "Norbit" and "Date Movie."
