He posted on his Facebook page:  "The guy passed me when I first got on the bridge, next thing I know I was running over lamborgini parts in the road."

He described the driver as “a bald black guy” and said “a skinny black girl was trying to open the driver’s door to get the man out when I drove past.”

The vehicle was identified as a Lamborghini Diablo. The were made by the Italian sports car company from 1990 to 2001 and can cost from $150,000 to $200,000.

It was the first Lamborghini capable of attaining a top speed in excess of 200 miles per hour.
