A 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago, like the one that crashed and was abandoned in La Jolla March 18.

Police on Monday were searching for the owner of a black 2008 Lamborghini that crashed along a La Jolla roadside and was abandoned by its two occupants, reportedly only hours after it was bought for around a quarter-million dollars.

Officers found the banged up sports car on the side of La Jolla Village Drive near La Jolla Scenic Drive North about 11:45 p.m. Monday, March 18, according to San Diego police.

Witnesses reported seeing the Lamborghini Murcielago speeding on Interstate 5 before it flew off the La Jolla Village Drive exit and crashed into a wall, police said, adding that witnesses also saw a Hispanic man and a caucasian woman exit the car and head westbound on La Jolla Village Drive. They have not been located.

Officers found paperwork in the car showing it was purchased for almost $250,000 just hours before the crash, according to KGTV 10 News. Police told the news station they were staking out an address listed on the paperwork in hopes of finding the driver. According to San Diego Police Commander Brian Ahern, the car had a sticker on it from Symbolic Motor Car Company, which has a location on La Jolla Boulevard in the Village.

    Why don’t they release the name of the purchaser, and post a DMV photo? That might speed up there investigation.

    • Jeeepee

      They don’t know for sure of the owners were driving it and the names on the paperwork aren’t necessarily suspected of commiting a crime so I don’t think they can just randomly publicize their names,
      Can they??
