LA JOLLA: Lamborghini crashed, abandoned just hours after purchase
(CNS) – Police searched Tuesday for the owner of a 2008
Lamborghini that crashed along a La Jolla roadside and was abandoned by its two
occupants, reportedly only hours after it was bought for around a quarter-million dollars.
Officers found the banged up sports car on the side of La Jolla Village
Drive near La Jolla Scenic Drive North about 11:45 p.m. Monday, according to
San Diego police.
Witnesses reported seeing the Lamborghini Murcielago speeding on
Interstate 5 before it flew off the La Jolla Village Drive exit and crashed,
police said, adding that witnesses also saw a man and a woman exit the car.
Officers found paperwork in the car showing it was purchased for almost
$250,000 just hours before the crash. Police were staking out an address listed on the paperwork in
hopes of finding the driver.
