There was also another video recorded by a witness at the scene, and in the video, the person behind the camera can be seen approaching the Lamborghini driver and saying, “Yes, you’re rich. But now, look what has happened!”
To which the driver of the Lamborghini can be heard saying, “It’s not my car. It’s a rental.”
