SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego police are searching for a couple who crashed a $250,000 Lamborghini only hours after it was purchased.
KGTV-TV says police were called to a street in the La Jolla area at around 11:45 p.m. Monday. Witnesses reported that a 2008 black Lamborghini Murcielego left Interstate 5 at high speed and crashed on La Jolla Village Drive.
After the car's front end was smashed, a man and woman got out and ran off.
Police say they found paperwork indicating the car had been purchased a few hours earlier for nearly $250,000.
The driver, if found, could face charges of leaving the scene of an accident.
