West Midlands Police officers were left searching for the driver of a £363,00 Rolls-Royce after it collided with a £160k Lamborghini Urus in Walsall on Tuesday.
The cars, which were being shown off to spectators on a local housing estate, were left ‘in-situ’ following the crash. There were no reports of any injuries. West Midlands Police have confirmed that no arrests have been made and that they are searching for one male.
During his haste to flee the scene, one of the occupants of the vehicle left a photo of himself in the car. BlackCountryLive reported seeing a video which shows the red Lamborghini being hit from behind after breaking to give way to an oncoming vehicle.
Force Response WMP tweeted saying:
“Well…this is an expensive crash. I wonder if it was the cost or another reason why the Rolls driver left the scene? Either way, we have his photo and will ask him very soon.
“Driver was not driving for the conditions and obviously can’t handle a car like this. Walsall E unit.”
It is thought that the cost to repair the vehicles could be as high as £500,000.
