Speaking to local media outlet WSVN, Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Timothy Heiser informed that the Lamborghini SUV crashed into another vehicle and “flew through the air about maybe 20 to 30 feet, landed on the roof of the house, hit the tree, and fell to the ground and burst into flames”.
The images shared by the department showed several different views of the incident, with one even capturing the white Lamborghini Urus upside down as fire officials extinguished the flames.
