Lamborghini bursts into flames; Driver suspected to have been drink-driving

A Lamborghini burst into flames early Wednesday morning after its driver crashed the car into a road divider along the Lornie Road Flyover towards Upper Thomson Road.

No one was injured, said the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), which received a call at 12.55am requesting for assistance. It dispatched a fire engine and a Red Rhino to the scene.

The fire was eventually put out with a fire extinguisher and a water jet, but the vehicle was damaged beyond repair, said the SCDF.

The police cordoned off several lanes and arrested the male driver, who is in his 40s, for suspected drink-driving. Police investigations are ongoing.
