Nothing like a Friday night spin out.
Supercars are not like regular cars. We don't need to go into details here. But the bottom line is this: with great horsepower comes great responsibility. Too bad this Lamborghini Huracan owner didn't get that memo.
According to ABC News Australia, London-based cameraman Andrew Lawrence was on his way to work one morning last week spotted this purple Lamborghini Huracan in a roadside ditch just north of the British capital. Its owner was nowhere to be found. Yes, that owner abandoned an estimated $250,000 supercar in a ditch because, well, they didn't know how to drive it. "The car was facing the wrong way and was on the wrong side of the road in the ditch," the cameraman said. "It must have spun off the road during the night."
The driver's side door, in this case the right side, was jammed against the ground so the driver must have abandoned ship using the passenger door. Metropolitan Police said they first began receiving reports that a vehicle had swerved off the road at around 1:30 am Friday. However, once police arrived to investigate, the owner was already gone. There may be one major clue that'll help police track down the owner, aside from its license plate. The cameraman who first spotted and reported the crashed Huracan noted that it was found not too far from the training ground for the Tottenham Hotspurs English Premiere League soccer club.
As we all know, many professional English soccer players have a habit of buying expensive exotics such as this. Perhaps a Friday night out got a little too much fun? Turns out no soccer/football player was involved.
The culprit is Bitcoin investor Michael Hudson. He came back in the morning to claim the car and laughed off the whole thing. He claimed he skidded on "standing water" but managed to avoid a nearby pole. Instead of calling a tow truck like a normal person would, the easiest thing was to just walk away? Apparently. Hudson realized the damage was minimal and plans to get the Lamborghini back on the road soon.
