The driver of the rear-wheel drive Lambo attempted to pass a Renault Express by doubling it, lost control and hit the car. The Galliardo subsequently hit a fire hydrant and then landed on the grass, as you can see in the adjacent photos.

It is reported that a man driving a Fiat 500, who had witnessed the scene, collected the driver and passenger of the supercar and took off before the police arrived at the scene. It seems that the 500 subsequently was also involved in a crash. There were two people in the Express, who sustained minor injuries in the crash and were taken to the hospital by firefighters, who used a helicopter for the job.

The driver of the 500 then went to the police, declaring that he was behind the wheel of the Balboni. However, the authorities carried on with the investigation and discovered that the Lambo that started it all was actually being driven by a woman, with the passenger being her sister.

However, the police hasn’t offered a final answer, but they are optimistic about finding a solution for this case.
