McLaren, Porsche, And Mercedes-AMG Street Race Ends In Tears

Crash

Four people were injured in the crash involving three supercars and a Toyota Prado.

If you're a car enthusiast, seeing expensive exotics reduced to mangled wrecks is a heart-breaking sight. We recently mourned the loss of a Koenigsegg Agera RS in Switzerland, and now not one, not two, but three high performance supercars have been involved in a nasty-looking smash-up on a highway in Columbia. The crash involved a McLaren 650S, Porsche Boxster S, and Mercedes-AMG GT S after one of the cars collided with a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.

According to a social media post by Fuel Car Magazine, the accident may have been caused by an unexpected lane change in the wet conditions at high speed. The Mirror also reports that excessive speed was a factor according to Colonel Fabio Saavedra of the Highway Police of Cundinamarca. No surprise there.

The publication reports that one of the supercars lost control in the wet conditions, crossed lanes, and slammed into the oncoming Toyota. It then veered back into its original lane and hit the other two supercars. All four drivers had to be cut free from their wrecked vehicles by fire fighters. Thankfully, nobody was killed, but four people were injured and are said to be in a stable condition in hospital. Each supercar suffered significant damage and will likely be written off. The front fascia of the McLaren has been completely ripped off, as has one of the sides and the rear. Both the Porsche Boxster S and Mercedes-AMG GT S suffered similar damage and were left with crumpled front ends.

We don’t think those wounds will buff out easily, somehow. As for the innocent driver in the Toyota Prado that got caught up in the accident, the mid-sized SUV can be seen in a ditch on the side of the highway but doesn’t look as damaged as the supercars. Apparently, this particular stretch of highway is popular with street racers on weekends which probably explains the circumstances of the crash. It never ceases to amaze us why some people think racing on a public road with traffic is a good idea, because this is usually the result.
