The Gordon Gazette’s local news coverage reveals that on July 22nd, 2023, Spencer Hyde, who was behind the wheel of a 2018 Lamborghini Aventador, met with an accident on the I-75 in Georgia, USA. Hyde reportedly lost control of his Aventador and collided with the rear of a truck situated in the far-right lane.
The forceful collision wedged the Lamborghini under the trailer, causing a significant disruption to highway traffic. The Georgia State Patrol confirmed that the incident led to a nearly one-and-a-half-hour closure of two lanes on I-75.
A Testament to Modern Chassis Technology
Miraculously, Hyde, who is 36 years old, was the only person injured in the accident. The collision’s aftermath left the Aventador in a disastrous state with a smashed front end but a surprisingly intact safety cell, a testament to modern chassis technology that likely saved Hyde’s life.
Interestingly, the police had issued a “BOLO” (be on the lookout) for a Lamborghini speeding at over 100 mph on the same highway twenty minutes before the accident occurred.
As the clean-up operation at the crash site continued into the afternoon, uncertainty lingered over whether the authorities would press charges against Hyde. The State Patrol is conducting an ongoing investigation into the accident. This incident underscores the destructive potential of high-speed vehicles and the critical importance of advanced safety features in modern automobiles.
