If you’re feeling a bit glum this Monday morning, spare a thought for this Lamborghini driver who crashed into a motorway barrier.

The driver in question lost control of their vehicle on standing water before taking out part of the barrier.

The incident happened near Ramsbottom on Sunday morning, on the M66.

According to GMP Traffic the driver fled the scene on foot before police arrived, leaving the destroyed car in the shrubbery.

Traffic officers couldn’t resist making a joke, saying the smashed luxury sports car was a ‘very expensive mistake’, adding that Lamborghinis ‘don’t make good boats’.

They tweeted:

Police also confirmed that there were no injuries, luckily.

Heavy rainfall over the weekend has led to some flooding in Greater Manchester, with several roads affected.
