The driver slammed their black Lamborghini Aventador S into the side of the A1198 at Caxton near Cambridge at around 8.30am on Sunday, September 27.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “We were called at 8.48am with reports of a single-vehicle collision on the A1198 in Caxton.

“Nobody was injured as a result of the collision, which involved a black Lamborghini Aventador, but when officers arrived the driver had left the scene.

“A 44-year-old man from Cambourne was later arrested on suspicion of drug driving. He was since been released under investigation.”

Pictures show a ‘ramp’ in the road just metres from the crash – which could have led to the Italian supercar losing control.

The images – taken by the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Road Policing Unit – show the extensive damage caused to the car.

The unit tweeted: “Single vehicle RTC A1198 Caxton, Cambs.

“Thankfully no injuries but the driver has provided a positive reading on a drugwipe and has been arrested.”
