SANTA MONICA -- A Lamborghini crashed into five parked cars in Santa Monica today, and the driver was expected to be booked or cited on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The accident at Ocean Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard occurred about 2:30 a.m., Santa Monica police Sgt. Shane Talbot said.
The driver of the Italian sports car and a passenger, both men, were taken to a hospital to be checked out, but neither appeared seriously injured, Talbot said.
A woman who lives near the intersection told a camera crew at the scene that she heard a high-powered car going up and down the street shortly before the wreck.
The silver-colored Lamborghini appeared to be totaled, and at least two of the parked cars were heavily damaged, according to a freelance video crew.
