Woman who wrote off rare £300,000 Lamborghini supercar in Lincolnshire fined £40

Kayleigh Finnie, a mental health worker, was driving an Alfa Romeo when she crashed into a yellow Lamborghini Aventador, a rare model favoured by numerous celebrities. The crash took place at around 4pm on July 5, 2021.

The Alfa Romeo was left several hundred metres away at the side of the road and remained at the scene long after the supercar had been removed.

While the accident caused no injuries, it is believed that the rare supercar, a model which costs between £250,000 and £300,000 second-hand, was damaged beyond repair.

Police discovered the 2016 Lamborghini lying across the road after the incident, with dark skid marks and scuffed-up verges beside it.

The road was closed for two-and-a-half hours while Humberside Police carried out an investigation.

Finnie appeared at Grimsby Magistrates Court charged with driving without due care and attention on Wednesday.

After pleading guilty, the defendant, who lives in Grainthorpe, Lincolnshire, was given three points on her licence and made to pay a £40 fine and £34 victim surcharge.

Humberside Police posted on Facebook: “Luckily, nobody has sustained serious injuries.”

Police included in their post the hashtag “#onnoLambo’.
