Toasted Lamborghini Murcielago Taken To Its GraveToasted Lamborghini Murcielago
A car lover's weekend can easily be influenced by the vehicles he or she comes across and some of us have had to deal with more difficult sights than other over the past two days.
Let's take Redditor WackyGuy, for instance. The man was traveling on Interstate 57 when he came across the setup in the photo above.

And we have to admit that, when you see the toasted remains of a once-mighty Lamborghini Murcielago probably being taken to the grave, your mood can be ruined. Truth be told, there don't seem to be too many parts of the car worthy of a potential project vehicle rising from these ashes.

So, what kind of terrible even turned a V12 Raging Bull into a pile of scrap? Well, as an ocregister report from earlier this month shows us, the Lambo had crashed on the Pacific Coast Highway, in the proximity of Prospect Street - you can check out a photo of a firefighter dealing with the post-crash flames.

Interestingly, it seems that two "subjects" were spotted running away from the totaled car. Sure, the driver and the passenger surviving a rollover crash that ended with a massive fire was good news, but police went searching for the pair.

While we don't have any new info on the matter, at the time when the said article was written, the officers hadn't managed to track down the two people who had fled the accident scene.

As you can imagine though, there are two main possibilities when it comes to the path that led to this crash. The first has to do with the owner of the car being involved in street racing at the time of the accident, as such a supercar practice wouldn't be anything new in the area. When it comes to the second, this is also connected to speeding, but could've involved the V12 Sant'Agata Bolognese machine getting stolen. Regardless, the world now has one less Murcielago.
