Lamborghini found overturned, with drops of blood, on Angeles Crest Highway
CHP officers found the red Lamborghini upside down and abandoned near Altadena in the early morning hours Wednesday and were looking for the driver.
A fire-engine-red Lamborghini was found upside down and abandoned on a canyon road early Wednesday morning, and authorities are now searching for its driver.
The California Highway Patrol responded to the scene on Angeles Crest Highway near Altadena and found the overturned and empty luxury vehicle with droplets of blood around it, Sgt. Adam Bender said.
Video from the scene shows the upended Lamborghini with its emergency lights still flashing as investigators combed the scene. Debris appeared to be scattered several feet away from the car.
Investigators were looking for the person who abandoned the car, which has Oregon license plates. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the driver and the car’s owner were the same person.
Nearby hospitals were searched, but the driver wasn’t found. There are no video cameras in the area, and officers don’t have “a lot to go on” in their investigation, Bender said.
Anyone with information about the crash or the car can call Altadena California Highway Patrol officers at (626) 296-8100.
