A high speed 2020 McLaren 600LT was traveling eastwards on Huston Street when the driver suddenly lost control over the car.
The uncontrollable car ran off the street and crashed with a stop sign and then a tree.
In an attempt to run away from the crime scene, the driver exited the car. His attempt was unsuccessful as he was stopped by the citizens who came for rescue. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
