A Lamborghini and a Bentley supercar worth an eye-watering £350,000 crashed in the same small town on the same night.
First, a high-powered Lamborghini Gallardo smashed through a barrier at a Morrison’s car park in Grays, Essex, just before 2am. The glittery top-of-the-range sports car was seen stuck in a hedge with its rear bumper loose.
Then photographer Daniel Patch also spotted another powder blue Bentley Continental GT whose front grill had been smashed in. Daniel, 36 from Grays, said: “I wouldn’t want to pick up the repair bill for either of them.
“I’d heard some tasty sounding engines when I was sat in my lounge and – being a car nut – got off my sofa to have a look. I heard the car coming back from Grays town centre so grabbed my phone in anticipation.
“That was when I saw the Lamborghini coming around the corner. It was a little greasy from some light rain and it just span it off through a small wooden fence and into the hedgerow. As soon as I saw the crash, I stopped recording and called 999.”
When Daniel went to bed at 5am he saw a low loader come to pick up the Lamborghini but doesn’t know what happened to the Bentley.
