The dream wedding procession is ruined and two supercars were written off during Sydney’s one-time storm – including a $ 250,000 Porsche that slammed into a parked truck
- Two supercars rented for a wedding procession crashed in Sydney’s western suburbs during the big storm
- A Porsche Carrera 911 was written off in Greystanes and a white Lamborghini hit a tree in Horsley Park
- Nobody was seriously injured and the occupants of the Porsche were driven to the hospital by friends
Two supercars rented for a wedding train crashed when their drivers lost control in Sydney’s storm in the century.
A Porsche Carrera 911 was written off in Greystanes in the west of the city around 1:30 p.m. when the driver lost control and ran into a stationary truck.
The other car, a white Lamborghini, crashed into a tree in nearby Horsley Park.
The Porsche Carrera 911, valued at more than $ 200,000, was written off in the crash
The white Lamborghini was renting for a wedding train when it crashed
The tree that the white Lamborghini crashed into was overturned
The Porsche, valued at over $ 200,000, crashed on Gipps Street when witnesses said it landed on the wrong side of the street and hit the truck.
The ambulance and fire department attended the scene when the driver was being rushed to the hospital by private transportation.
NSW Ambulances said the Porsche had two men in their thirties who were conscious and breathing when the ambulance arrived.
The crashes were the result of the furious storms that hit NSW. Premier Gladys Berejiklian called the storms “One in a 100 Year Event”.
The incessant rain has overcrowded most of NSW with widespread flooding and Sydney’s main water source, the Warragamba Dam.
As the rain continues to fall, more than 30 Sydney homes have been damaged, as have numerous evacuation orders to residents of Sydney’s western suburbs.
There have also been a number of road closures, causing delays across the city.
The rain is expected to continue until Wednesday next week.
Witnesses say the driver of the Porsche lost control of the car before encountering the stationary truck
The white Lamborghini was towed from the Horsley Park scene
Debris from the written-off Porsche lay on the floor
