In an incident in Bengaluru, a Lamborghini Gallardo crashes into a police booth. What's more, the owner also poses and takes a picture with it later.
With great (horse)power, drivers should be responsible and careful with their cars. That’s not how the original quote goes, but let’s not dwell on clichés. Accidents are quite common in India, with a majority of those happening due to the carelessness of either one or more aggrieved parties involved. Here’s a story about a Lamborghini owner who crashed his supercar into a police kiosk.
The incident took place in Bengaluru on Sunday, February 9th. The owner of the car, Sunny Sabharwal, was driving around in CTO Circle when his Lamborghini Gallardo lost control near Cubbon Park Metro Station. The car then swung around wildly and went straight into a Police kiosk by the side of the road. Thankfully, the personnel on duty were not inside the kiosk during the incident.

As is expected from a supercar worth crores, the driver of the Lamborghini escaped unharmed. He then fled the scene of the accident hurriedly, which is what a lot of miscreants usually do. Then, in a surprising manoeuvre, he returned to the scene a few hours later and decided to take pictures of the accident site and even posed in them! The pictures then went viral on the internet, prompting the 28-year-old supercar owner to take them down.
Someone present at the scene managed to capture the Lamborghini’s crash while it was happening. The clip went viral and has been posted on youtube by a few people as well. It can be seen in the video that the crashed car was a part of a procession of different supercars, which included at least another Lamborghini Gallardo and an Audi R8. The Lambo involved in the crash can be seen waiting at an intersection for the lights to turn green. As soon as they do, the Gallardo accelerates hard, trying to outrun everyone else standing alongside it. Sadly, the car then loses control and turns wildly towards the left, where it rammed into the kiosk and broke its wall.
The Police have since caught Sunny Sabharwal, although it hasn’t been revealed what charges have been filed against him. We’re sure his viral picture at the scene of the accident would have helped the authorities nab the guy.
On a more serious note, road accidents in India have been a huge problem since forever. According to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, there were 1,47,913 reported deaths in road-related accidents in 2017. That is a huge number, no matter the context, and a majority of these accidents have been the result of overspeeding. It is high time we take responsibility of making roads safe by being more careful behind the wheel.
