A lime-green 2015 McLaren 650S has been completely destroyed in a multi-vehicle crash in the Los Angeles suburb of Woodland Hills, KTLA5 reports. Aerial video of the crash, which was reported at 4:48 p.m. on Nov. 1, showed the $280,000 sports car with its front-end missing and debris scattered over a large area of the sidewalk. One other vehicle was reported to be damaged in the crash: a gray Audi sedan.
Various police officers whom KTLA5 spoke to indicated that a total of three or four cars may have been involved and that one of the vehicles that fled was likely street-racing the McLaren.
Police told KTLA5 that the driver of the McLaren, described as a man in his 40s, was transported to the hospital along with the driver of the Audi, who was said to be a man in his 60s or 70s.
Witnesses reported that the McLaren may have been racing a black Dodge Challenger or Charger prior to the crash, though the damage to the McLaren is believed to have resulted from its collision with the Audi and the curb.
Regardless of whether it was the actual cause, it’s a good time to remind readers that street-racing only ends well in movies. Don’t do it. Especially at 5 p.m. on a Tuesday in LA in proximity to a school.
