£150,000 Lamborghini Murcielago crashes into parked cars

A £150,000 Lamborghini Murcielago smashed into a group of parked cars on Globe Road in Holbeck, Leeds, at 8.13am yesterday morning.

The 31-year-old male driver of the high-powered supercar reportedly careered into a parked Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, suffering minor injuries and badly damaging the rare Italian exotic.
Amateur photographer Paul Inskip stumbled upon the scene after dropping his girlfriend off at a nearby hospital in Leeds.

He rounded a corner and came across the white Lamborghini being loaded onto the back of a recovery vehicle.

Paul, 39, said to the Halifax Courier: "Obviously I was surprised to see this Lamborghini hanging from mid-air smashed to pieces."

The crash ripped the front and rear bumpers from the 640bhp supercar, with damage also clearly done to both axles and the suspension.

A Spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: "At 8.13am this morning, police were notified about a collision on Globe Road, Leeds in which a Lamborghini vehicle struck a number of parked cars.

"The 31-year-old male driver of the Lamborghini suffered slight injuries in the incident. A Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, which were both parked at the time, were substantially damaged and needed to be recovered.

"An investigation is underway to ascertain the circumstances leading to the collision."

The insurance bill is likely to be eye-wateringly expensive but not as bad as the group of Ferrari drivers that were involved in the world's most expensive car crash in 2011.

The total cost of the pile-up, that included eight Ferraris and a Lamborghini Diablo, was said to have totalled £2.6 million.
