A crashed and empty $200,000 Lamborghini sports car was found empty on the side of the road in La Jolla, Calif., on Monday night with paperwork from Lamborghini Newport Beach in Orange County inside.

A couple allegedly abandoned the crashed car on the highway just hours after buying it, according to Daily Mail.

Police reports say the 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago smashed into a wall and that a man and woman were seen leaving the vehicle before police found it empty around 11:45 p.m.

Police are still trying to track down the owner of the car and the person who was driving it at the time, however, there is currently no indication that the car was stolen, according to Lt. Kevin Mayer of the San Diego Police Department.

No one has contacted the department to claim the impounded car.

“There’s a variety of reasons that someone would abandon a car after a crash,” Lt. Mayer said. “If it was stolen, if the driver was too scared to report a crash or if the were drinking and driving.”

Both the front-end and the rear driver’s side were smashed, and police say the owner of the car will be able to claim it after answering questions about the crash, should they contact police.

Fox News in San Diego reported that the driver could face a misdemeanor hit and run charge.
