Just a little over a year since the Italian police took the keys to their new Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 for patrolling the roads of Italy, the supercar has been written off.
Apparently the Lambo struck a row of parked cars while being piloted through the streets of Cremona, “the driver swerving to avoid another car in the roadway that had cut it off”.
Two policemen were in the car, and though the passenger got out with only bruises, the driver suffered crushed vertebra and a broken rib. Both are expected to recover fully.
Italy’s police have logged over 87,000 miles of duty with Gallardo patrol cars since 2004.
