What could be a bad day for a young man? Crashing a Lamborghini Huracan would be. What could be worse? The Lamborghini Huracan isn’t his.

According to a report by Q13 Fox, a 23-year old man in Edmonds, Washington, crashed a rented Lamborghini Huracan onto another vehicle. While the one who rented the supercar was his brother – for a family event in Edmonds -- this careless driver thought it was okay to play with the law.

Around 11:30 pm of August 13, 2017, police officers tapped to patrol the Taste of Edmonds festival saw a female passenger holding a beer while leaning out of the passenger window of a white Lamborghini Huracan. This prompted the police officers to attempt pulling over the Huracan. Unfazed initially, police officers tried to pursue the Huracan. Unfortunately for them, the white Huracan proved to be too fast to be caught up, so police officers gave up the chase, citing speed and safety reasons. However, what ultimately stopped the white Huracan weren’t police officers but an accident some time later.

After the initial chase, the male driver managed to speed away and even ran a number of stop signs in the downtown area. Minutes later, the white Lamborghini Huracan rear ended another vehicle, effectively ending the adventure of the driver and his 20-year old lady companion. Both the driver and the passenger have been taken into police custody. The driver was booked for DUI and for attempting to elude a police vehicle. The passenger, meanwhile, was booked for being a minor in possession of alcohol.

The white Lamborghini Huracan received some serious damage on the front end, in particular on its left side. The collision totaled the left front fascia, the left side of the bonnet, the left headlights and a number of components. While the people in the other vehicle were visibly shaken, they weren’t injured. The Lamborghini Huracan was being rented for $1,300 a day. Now, it’s to be expected that the operator or owner will demand considerable compensation from the careless driver.

With a base price of around $240,000 in the United States, the Lamborghini Huracan is powered by 5.2 liter V10 engine that delivers around 601 hp of max output and around 413 pound-feet of peak torque. This power level is enough to send the Huracan – which name is derived from a Spanish fighting bull – sprinting from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds and achieving a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h). It is no wonder then that the police officers gave up the chase too soon.
