Lamborghini Huracan Breaks in Half, then Bursts into Flames in Chicago

It seems like accidents involving supercars tend to happen on a somewhat regular basis. Today, I’m here to talk about an accident involving a Lamborghini Huracan that met its untimely demise in the windy city over the weekend. Reports are still coming in from various sources, but as you can see from the image above, the Lambo not only split in half but caught on fire as well. Fortunately, witnesses on the scene were able to pull the drive from the wreckage just before it burst into flames.
For now, no official information has been released, but a report from NBC 5 out of Chicago says that witnesses claim a Lincoln MKS made contact with the Hurcane which ultimately sent it straight into the telephone pole that broke the car in half. The rear half continued in that direction until it struck a fence while the front half of the vehicle sat in the middle of the street. Reports indicate that the passenger cell that is built into the Huracan – much like that of other supercars like the McLaren 650S, for example – protected the driver like it was supposed to.
It’s an unfortunate happening for the driver of the Huracan – totaling a $240,000 car can ruin anyone’s week – but at least he walked away with his life. For now, Chicago police are still investigating the accident.

Why it Matters
I’ve got to say that this has to be one of the more devastating supercar accidents that I’ve seen in a while. But, you’ve got to give it to that passenger protection cell and the witnesses on scene that helped pull the driver from the car before it burst into flames. The video above shows the scene as recorded from a dashcam and shows part of the Lambo on fire as the Lincoln sits in the middle of the street as well. I’ve got to say, though, something about a Lincoln MKS killing a Lamborghini Huracan is a little unsettling. After all, the MKS is a $50,000 car in range-topping form. You could buy 5 of them for the price of a Huracan, and it looks like the one in this accident may even be repairable. It’s just a little ironic in my opinion.
