A white Lamborghini Huracan involved in a deadly crash on Noida-Greater Noida Expressway is owned by Italica Motors Private Limited and was being driven by one Vaibhav Singh, police said on Tuesday.
The company owns dealership of Lamborghini in Delhi.
The car was traced through CCTV footage obtained from the Expressway, said Devpal Singh Pundir, the station house officer of Expressway police station.
“We had interrogated the driver about the crash. He said he was not at fault as the driver of the Swift Dzire tried to overtake his car and hit him. To avoid major impact, he, too, swerved left resulting in a collision with the Maruti Eeco van,” Pundir said of the accident that killed one.
“We will make further inquiries into the matter and seek details about the crash, which resulted in the death of the person who was at the wheels of Maruti Eeco van. We will submit a charge sheet in court,” an investigating officer said.
There’s no clarity yet on whether the Lamborghini was owned by Singh or he was taking a test drive on it.
Quizzed on the matter, Italica Motors Private Limited refused to comment saying they had put forward their version to the police.
Noida City SP Arun Kumar Singh said, “The CCTV footage makes it clear that the driver of the Swift Dzire was at fault in taking a sudden left turn. The driver of the Lamborghini is pleading not guilty. However, he is a party to the accident.”
Visuals of the horrific crash, involving the Huracan, Swift Dzire and the Maruti Eeco, were captured by the CCTV camera installed near Sector 135 on the Expressway.
In the footage it is seen that a speeding Swift Dzire suddenly changes lane and rams the Lamborghini, following which the Lamborghini swerves to the left hitting the Maruti Eeco.
Such was the impact of the crash that the van driver lost control and the vehicle tumbled several times before falling into a pit along the expressway. The driver died on the spot.
