Lamborghini Aventador crash in New York splits supercar in half [video]

This is one of those crashes that at first looks very bad, considering one of the vehicles splits in half. Surveillance cameras in New York captured a pretty bad collision between a Lamborghini Aventador and an oncoming vehicle, which looks to be a Mazda. As you can see the other vehicle made a left turn right in front of the Aventador, forcing it off the road, hitting a tree and a fence. As a result the 600 horsepower supercar splits in half.

The speed could have been an issue, though looking at the video it does not seem like the driver was going at extreme speeds. There are currently no reports of anyone being injured very bad.

Those who wonder how come it split in half it is no surprise as the Aventador has a very strong one piece carbon fibre monocoque around the driver. In case of an accident everything around it may break off, similar to race cars.
