Man Smashes Lamborghini Into Tree On Wet Weather Drive In Sydney
If there was ever a day to leave the ol' Lamborghini sitting in the garage, today might have been it.
Just after 3pm on Monday, emergency services were called to the Horsley Drive in Fairfield following reports of a single-vehicle crash.
"Upon arrival of police and fire services, we found a Lamborghini that had left the roadway and collected with a (brick) fence and a tree," Smithfield Fire Station's John Moore said.
"There is also a live power box beneath the vehicle."
The male driver was left uninjured, a NSW Police spokesperson told 10 daily, while the vehicle was removed and the road reopened by 4:30pm.
Physically uninjured, yes, but the case for whether he was lucky or unlucky is still open -- prices for a new Lamborghini start somewhere around half-a-million dollars.

The 28-year-old was issued with an infringement notice for negligent driving.
Moore urged all drivers to take extra care in bad weather.
"Just a reminder to all drivers out there that the roads are slippery with this wet weather," he said.
"If you could pay attention while driving and reduce your speed that'd be great."
Heavy rain wreaked havoc across Sydney on Monday, with flash-flooding, train cancellations and Light Rail closures.
