haha what an idiot... y own a car like that if you cant drive it


I'm fairly sure that most owners of super cars are barely capable of driving a go kart, they just happen to have more money than the rest of us

But the videographer did capture the driver of his own Pontiac making one and possibly two illegal U-turns in the road while recording the aftermath. However much money they may get from a few ads on YouTube won't make up for the cost of a traffic ticket and auto insurance hike.



What does this part even have to do with it... the guy filming didn't get a ticket or an insurance hike, just not sure what the point of that comment was...

U-turns are illegal, and it wouldn't be the first time someone has been charged with something they did in a YouTube video.

Why are the two cars the Lambo crashed into stationary so far away from the lights?

They were probably both moving somewhat slowly coming up to the red light, and stopped when they saw the out of control Lamborghini barreling toward them.

I saw this on Jalopnik and someone brought up the point about the driver filming doing two illegal U-Turns.

Oh no big deal! If its save why not do them.

In Canada, the U-turn would be legal. The law requires that anyone who witnesses a crash worth $5000+ to stop and help if needed and stay for a police report. If a U-turn was illegal in that area, it would be legal of him to perform the U-turn if he intended to get out of his vehicle and help those in the accident regardless of how severe it is. Since he did not, I think he also broke the law as a witness for not stopping to help.

Could be a wide turn lane for large trucks/semi's to be able to turn into.

He should have offered to give the video to the victims of the "accident". It would help with the insurance (even though it's pretty easy to prove who's at fault here lol)


Don't need it. He (Lambo driver) hit cars on the wrong side of the road. Its his fault.
