A Crime Punishable By, Well, Something Really Severe...

It physically causes me pain to bring you this story. It really does. Blame Stretch. He's the one that sent it in.

Lamborghini crashed, abandoned in New Jersey
Police are looking for the person who crashed a high-performance sports car and left it burning near the George Washington Bridge.

Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says the Lamborghini was found on fire and unoccupied in the westbound lanes near the bridge toll plaza in Fort Lee early Monday.
Now, there's only two reasons I can think of why someone would abandon a quarter of a million dollar sports car. The first is that they stole it - in which case, you think there'd be a police report on a stolen Lambo. The second is that the driver was under the influence of some sort of mind-altering substance and didn't want to get caught. In either case, they deserve a good public flogging for causing damage to such a fine automobile.

UPDATE: Case #2 just got a lot stronger - the driver has been identified. I wonder if leaving the scene of the accident will give his insurance company a reason to deny the claim? It would serve him right for trying to evade arrest for driving under the influence. I don't think anyone buys that you would wreck a $200K+ car and leave the scene if you just happened to hit the wrong pedal or something...


Wrecking a work of art like a Diablo should be punishable by scourging...

That is all.

Oh Jay, this is certainly not the first time this has happened: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/bears/2007-08-27-briggs-car_N.htm

I read the first line of the news article to my wife, a former Mass resident, and her only comment was "He was drunk, wasn't he?"
