Andrew Laurence, a UK-based cameraman, was reportedly driving to his job in London when he found a $500,000 Lamborghini that had crashed on the wrong side of the road. According to reports related to the incident, the luxurious vehicle, a Lamborghini Huracan Performance (SE 20 Viola Huracán Performante Edition), belongs to Michael Hudson, the CEO of Bitstocks, a crypto market advisory and management service.

After discovering the crashed Lamborghini, Laurence took pictures of the car and called the police. The officials investigating the incident then tried to locate the luxury vehicle’s owner and soon learned that the Lamborguini belonged to Hudson, a “prolific speaker” and “highly sought-after thought leader in the crypto space,” according to his Crunchbase profile.
Police Called In Late At Night
According to the DailyMail, a spokesperson from the Metropolitan police department remarked:
We were called to reports that a vehicle had left the road at 1.30am this morning. A vehicle was found off the road and there were no persons present. Enquiries have been made to establish the occupants of the car. No injuries were reported.
Other details related to the incident revealed the bright purple Lamborghini crashed near the training ground of the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club in London. A few hours after the vehicle was discovered, Hudson reportedly arrived to claim the car. Commenting on the incident, Hudson remarked via social media: “Appreciate all those that called and messaged. I’m totally fine, car damage isn’t too bad either. May post a video on it later today. Thanks again.”
As explained by Hudson, the accident occurred due to “standing water” on the single-lane road where he had been driving. Because of the water, his vehicle reportedly skidded, resulting in a crash.
Bitcoin SV Supporter Not Under Influence Of Alcohol
Yianni Charalambous, a celebrity car customizer who helped Hudson tow his car out of a ditch as he attempted to block the road with his own Lamborghini, confirmed that the Bitcoin SV supporter was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol while driving. Moreover, Charalambous claimed that Hudson remained calm despite the stressful car crash.
Explaining why the car initially appeared to have been abandoned, Charalambous told the DailyMail:
He wasn't hurt and no other cars were involved. He was the only one in the car and had to climb across the seats to get out. He lives near by so he just walked home. When I spoke to him this morning he said he just wanted to deal with it in the morning so I rang my recovery people.
It now appears that Hudson may have already recovered from the incident, as he posted an update via his Twitter account:
This is crazy! It’s been picked up by all the national papers 🙈.
