Lamborghini Huracan crashes, catches fire on Kuala Lumpur-Karak highway; results in death and injury

A crash involving a Lamborghini Huracan has occured over the weekend, which has unfortunately claimed the life of its driver while injuries were sustained by the vehicle’s passenger, the New Straits Times reported.

“Investigations revealed the driver and his friend were travelling from Kuala Lumpur towards Bentong. Upon reaching the spot, the driver failed to control the vehicle, resulting in it crashing into the divider before ending up in the drain. The car spun several times before the crash,” said Bentong district police chief Superintendent Zaiham Mohd Kahar.

The driver died at the scene and the passenger suffered burns on her hand and legs, the Bentong district police chief added. In an earlier report, the incident was reported to have occurred at KM57.1 of the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway, near Bentong.

In dashcam footage circulating on X/Twitter, the crashed yellow Huracan was depicted travelling in a group, also comprised of a Huracan Spyder, a Porsche Cayman and another Huracan coupé. Given the incident was reported to have occurred on Saturday, it was likely that the group was travelling together for leisure, as many enthusiasts do.

Loss of life is tragic, and it pays to remember that driving (and riding) on a public road is to share space with other members of the public, which means that other motorists will be in the immediate vicinity. Drive to the road conditions – which also means to be sensitive to surrounding traffic – and always be ready to slow down. As it turned out, disaster can and does strike on a clear, sunny day.

  • There’s a saying that those who live by the sword, die by the sword. Hyper-cars requires proper driver training to handle it. Unfortunately, many owners underestimate their car’s power or worse, overestimate their own driving capability. Condolences to the driver and his family though.

    Karma. Overcompensating old fart think he’s still half his age, and promptly gets a reality check. This irresponsible old fool could have gotten other road users killed.

    What training? From the videos,they r speeding at breakneck speed.
    All of the supercars should be hauled up by PDRM.
    To put is cruelly,have u watched the show “You ask for it?”
    No body celebrate loss of lives,but speed demons are a clear and present danger not only to themselves but to other road users.

    Travel in a group but did any other the other cars in the same group came to help?

    This accident would have been avoided if the driver would have just followed the speed limit.

    It’s sad to know that the driver was roasted alive in the car.

  • They were obviously speeding, it’s recorded and shared everywhere. Are the police not going to do anything with his friends who were obviously racing on public road?
