Driver crashes newly purchased $250K Lamborghini in La Jolla

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (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, News 8 learned. Police are using that paperwork to track down the driver.
