Police searched today for the owner of a 2008 Lamborghini that crashed along a La Jolla roadside and was abandoned by its two occupants, reportedly only hours after it was bought for around a quarter-million dollars.
Officers found the banged up sports car on the side of La Jolla Village Drive near La Jolla Scenic Drive North about 11:45 p.m., Monday March 18, according to San Diego police.
