Must read

WEST VANCOUVER, Canada – A teenager in West Vancouver took a Lamborghini Huracán for a disastrous joyride, ultimately destroying the high-value sports car under dark and stormy conditions on the Trans-Canada Highway.

The incident, which occurred on March 25, 2024, has led to the 13-year-old boy facing multiple charges for underage driving.

The vehicle, owned by an individual in the process of selling the luxury sports car, was handed over to the teenager and his friend without any verification of age or driving license status. The boy reportedly tricked the car owner that he was

Travelling at a speed of 62 mph, the young driver lost control of the car, resulting in it veering off the road and into a ditch.

West Vancouver Police have stated that the owner’s failure to inquire about the driver’s age or license status before allowing them to take the car has led to a complex situation.

Despite the significant property damage, the teenager has not been charged with theft, as the vehicle was used with the owner’s permission, albeit under misleading circumstances.

Sgt. Chris Bigland of the West Vancouver Police provided insight into the incident, noting the apparent oversight by the car’s owner in assessing the risk involved in handing over the keys.

“We do not believe that the registered owner was aware of the true age of this young person, or that they were unable or were not licensed to drive in British Columbia,” Bigland remarked, highlighting a serious misjudgment that had grave consequences.

The consequences for the teenager have been serious but are confined to traffic violations.

Charged with speeding, driving without due care, failing to remain at the scene of an accident, and driving without a license, the young driver faces penalties under the Motor Vehicle Act.

These charges do not require a court appearance unless contested by the defendant. The owner of the Lamborghini, meanwhile, escapes legal repercussions despite the oversight.

This incident has prompted a police report to the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia to explore the implications for insurance claims following the unusual and destructive event.
