Driver Crashes New Lambo After Swerving To Save Animal's Life
We can only imagine that moment when you can afford to buy a $400,000 Lamborghini Murcielago and then take that baby out for a spin, only to have your dreams crushed because you crashed it right after.
That's what happened to one driver who went for a nice drive out on Sepulveda Blvd. near the Getty Center in Brentwood in his recently-bought Lambo early Wednesday at 1 a.m., reported NBC Los Angeles. The driver told LAPD that while he was on the road, he swerved to avoiding hitting an animal. But as luck would have it, he ended up crashing it into a telephone pole.
This is the gnarly damage he did to his car:
Police checked him for a DUI, and didn't arrest him.
