SURREY â€” Two motorists are facing dangerous driving charges related to an alleged street race last December that demolished a 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago.
Adam Shtay, 27, from Edmonton, and Joshua Dally, 31, from Surrey, has each been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle while street racing.
Police said the alleged race, between the Lamborghini and a 2013 Dodge Viper, ended with a crash at Highway 99 near 32nd Avenue, on Dec. 22, 2014.
Surrey firefighters had to put the flaming Lamborghini out.
â€œWitnesses described the two vehicles traveling at excessive speeds before the crash occurred,â€ Surrey RCMP Cpl. Dale Carr said. â€œDuring the course of their investigation, officers learned that the vehicles reached speeds up to 157 kilometres an hour.â€
Carr said the RCMP has requested that both vehicles be forfeited to the state as offence related property should the accused be convicted.
â€œLuckily no one was seriously injured, however, the consequences of such a high speed collision on a major arterial roadway in our city could have been catastrophic.â€
