Chances are that if your "to-do" list for a given day includes picking up your new Lamborghini Murcielago, things are going pretty well. After all, taking delivery of a new Lambo generally indicates one has some serious coin and that the good life is being lived. But the trappings of the good life can be fraught with danger, as the Murci can be merciless to its pilot if not treated with the proper amount of respect.
This seems to be the lesson learned by one Ronald Tridico of Florida. According to witnesses, Mr. Tridico was apparently speeding while navigating a curve on state Road 429 near Orlando when the Murcielago headed off the pavement into the grassy roadside area. Local6.com's photo coverage seems to indicate that a speed limit sign got taken out during the impromptu off-roading excursion. Photos show a fair amount of damage to the lower bodywork, as those aero bits don't take well to uneven and unpaved surfaces. Mr. Tridico was arrested and charged with suspicion of DUI and leaving an accident scene. His wife, who was in the passenger seat, reportedly suffered a minor arm injury, as well. And so a day that likely began with Mr. Tridico wearing a broad smile as he accepted the keys to his new toy ended with a less-enthused look on his face in the mugshot taken after the authorities caught up with him. Cue the music...

      It might sound stereotypical, but that guy looks like a mob boss (a stupid mob boss). Of course, it may not be his fault. http://www.lambounfall.de/lamborghini_murcielago_crash.html

      he even LOOKS like the type of d-bag that would wreck a brand new YELLOW Lamborghini....sigh....

      This guy is the total package! On top of destroying his brand new Lambo a DUI and injuring his wife, he was also in trouble with the FCC a few years for unsolicited telephone advertisments:

      It's stories like this (and there's a lot of them!) that make me ashamed that I live in Orlando!

      Classic case of oversteer(ed).

      And two more words for Mr. Tridico's Italian adventure: Molto stupido.

      Florida SUCKS!

      That guy --and his wife -- pretty much sum up the whole Florida lifestyle. Crooks, all of them.

        ummm...someone seems bitter. What's so wrong about the Florida lifestyle

      Ah, another rich person with a nice car that keeps with windows down when he goes cruising, so that everyone can tell him how nice his car is. Too bad when he goes offroad with the windows down, he gets grass sprayed in his face and all over those nice seats.

        You have your windows down for a different reason. (Barring any instances of delusional fantasy.)

        Speaking of rolling in your Pinto:

        What about when I'm driving around in my Pinto with the windows down?

        Bitter much?

      It'd have been much better if he'd been driving an Amulet, or a Brilliance.
      • 7 Years Ago
      He wasn't driving while drunk so much as driving without talent.
