Parking Tickets: Italian Police Lamborghini Seriously Injured In The Line Of Duty

December 1, 2009


If you've been reading Geekologie for over a year (gold star reader!) you may recall the story we ran about Lamborghini donating two Gallardo's to the Italian police for use in high-speed chases involving other supercars. Well, if you couldn't tell by the picture, one of them isn't doing so hot.

The 200mph Gallardo ploughed into parked cars after it swerved to avoid another vehicle that had just pulled out of a petrol station. It was being driven back from a special show for students when the accident happened near the city of Cremona.

Two police officers in the car escaped with only minor injuries. No-one else was hurt in the crash.

Police also use the vehicles to ferry transplant organs in specially fitted fridges.

Hell yeah, transplant organs. Say, any healthy livers in that fridge? Kidding -- I'm vegetarian!

Hit the jump for one more shot from the other side.

Thanks to maria and nortilus, who have both be known to sit in cardboard boxes in the kitchen and pretend they're driving supercars. MLIG.
