(Great Falls, Va.) (AP) — Police say a northern Virginia driver has totaled a newly purchased $300,000 sports car by driving too fast and hitting a tree.
Fairfax County Police on Saturday posted a photo on Facebook of a badly mangled McLaren 720s sports car leaning up against a relatively unscathed tree off the side of a two-lane road in Great Falls.
Police said the driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The Facebook post said the $300,000 import had just been purchased on Friday.
Police attributed the crash to excessive speed and reminded drivers to slow down.
