As far as car accidents in the big city go, this one was a doozy. A Lamborghini crashed in Toronto and wound up on the lawn of Queen's Park after colliding with a pickup truck. No injuries were reported for either driver.
The bright red Lamborghini had flipped onto its roof and landed on the lawn of Ontario's legislative headquarters before stopping just short of hitting a statue. The pickup truck also took significant damage on its front side.

A video taken by eyewitness Chris Edwards shows the extent of the damage taken by the Lamborghini. The video also shows some of the damage taken by the truck involved in the accident. One of the Lamborghini's wheels appears to have fallen off the car.
According to Edwards, who photographs exotic cars in Toronto, the car is a Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2. He told Narcity, "They sell for around $250k to $300k depending on options." He also noted that this is one of the lower-end models from the Huracan line.
According to the Lamborghini website, this particular Huracan model has a v10 engine. It can also reach a max speed of 320km/hour and can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. If pushed even further, it can accelerate from zero to 200 km/h in just over ten seconds.
Another witness who saw the crash happen told CityNews that the Lamborghini cut the truck off right before the collision. They also said it looked like the car might have been involved in a street race. However, police have not confirmed any details about what led to the crash.
There have not been any charges laid in the accident, but the owner of the Lamborghini is most likely going to have to drop quite a bit of cash to get their car back in working condition.
