Sitting behind a Lamborghini Gallardo at a traffic light in suburban Chicago, a passenger taking a video tape of the high-priced vehicle says, "He's going to be gone," when the traffic light changes.

The Lamborghini wasn't gone. It was merely a goner.

Instead of proceeding through the left turn with little fanfare, the driver of the ostentatiously yellow Lambo accelerated so quickly that he lost control and skidded through the turn.

On southbound Wheeling Road, he lost control, veered across the double-yellow line and plowed the $225,000 sports car between two vehicles that had been waiting at a light. Police cited William Whitaker, 39, for failing to reduce speed and avoid an accident, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Chicago's CBS 2 attempted to interview Whitaker about the crash, which occurred on Sunday. But after a reporter asked him what happened, Whitaker reportedly told the station he expected a better question and hung up.

That led the station to report that no one was hurt in the incident, "except perhaps Whitaker's ego."

Whitaker was a bit more cooperative with police. In a police report of the incident, he told officers that he "just lost it" as he accelerated.

      So, they just posted a video of them leaving the scene of an accident?
        • 2 Years Ago
        @Jared Huggins
        That's the same I was thinking! Don't they have to stop to let the others know they got it on video? The driver of the Lambo is a total retard but the people videoing are the true ********.

        They're not involved in the accident and are not obligated to stop for any reason.

      The people in the car shooting the video are just as STUPID as the Lamborghini driver. They left the scene of an accident and put the video online? Video shooters can go to jail and the Lamborghini driver pays higher Insurance premiums. The passenger in the video car mentions stopping, however, the pansy driver in the video car wanted to leave the scene of the accident. Idiots all.

        The guy shooting the video and his "pansy driver" weren't involved in the accident they merely made a video of it. Are you saying that everyone who saw the accident was supposed to hang around? That would be dozens of vehicles parked on the side of the road and endless police reports. What would that accomplish?.

        Oh come on. There where plenty of people around, including two other cars involved in an accident that wasn't bad. Just how many people do you think that accident needed standing around getting in the way? I really doubt they could have done anything at all other than create yet more confusion. The only boneheaded thing they did was turn around and take a second look.

        Um, no, Practical 'Nad, you don't have to stay at the scene of an accident--unless you're involved in the accident, Einstein...duhhhhh. Come on--pull your head out, please, or you'll also be involved in a crash next time you attempt to drive. And yes, the Lamborghini driver will pay higher insurance premiums and should pay higher premiums. I'm guessing you won't be able to figure out this trick question, 'Nad, but if the Lamborghini driver didn't pay a higher premium, who do you think would end up paying for idiots like him causing needless damage just as he did: the insurance company executives or the rest of us insurance subscribers?
