Lamborghini Gallardo crash splits car in two, driver walks out with minor injuries

We have seen pictures and videos of some very bad crashes. The one you see here looks like another high-speed crash, splitting a Lambo in two, but with a twist. By the time police and paramedics arrived at the scene, the driver was already on the phone with his insurance company.

According to Bangkokpost, the Gallardo was driven by a 40-year-old-businessman named Pitak Riangsima, who was doing around 93mph in Tahiland, when he lost control of the all-wheel drive sports car and hit a tree, which split the car in two. When Mr. Pitak stepped out of the car he realized the car was split in two pieces.

This is typical to many of the sports cars as they are built around the driver and when the car crashes everything around the driver cockpit comes loose similar to Formula 1 cars.

So how did he survive such a crash? Was it Italian engineering, good luck or a higher force?

Mr. Pitak told that before the accident he visited a Buddhist temple in Nakhonsawan province, where his friend warned him that he should wear a Buddha amulet when driving longer distances. He listened to his friend on put on a rare amulet of a highly revered Buddhist monk.

Did the buddhist amulet save him or not is obviously not clear. But it sure is an interesting story.
