£186,000 supercar crashes into a signpost
NOBODY was hurt when a Lamborghini supercar crashed in Swindon yesterday – but the financial pain looked excruciating.
The white 2012 Gallardo convertible, thought to be worth up to £186,000, came to grief on Crombey Street and ended up with its bashed-in front end wedged against a pavement road sign.
Several police cars and an ambulance were called to the scene, but no-one involved was injured.
A man and a woman, thought to have been the occupants, refused to comment as passers-by stopped to capture the spectacle on mobile phone cameras.
A spokesman for the Great Western Ambu-lance Service said that they received a call to the incident shortly before 4pm.
Police officers arrived at the scene before the ambulance crews but as no-one was injured in the smash they were not needed.
A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: “We received a call from a member of the public at 3.40pm saying that a Lamborghini sports car had been in collision with a lamppost just outside the Central Library on Commercial Road.
“An ambulance attended but the driver was found to be uninjured so the ambulance was stood down.
“A road sign on Crombey Street has been damaged and Swindon Council has been notified.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously if wanted.
