Boy Accused Of Stealing Car In Perth Before Crashing It Into $400,000 Lamborghini Urus
A teenage boy has been arrested in Western Australia for going on a joyride that will likely cost him or his family thousands of dollars.
Police had been alerted to a stolen vehicle being found in a Perth suburb on Tuesday night and they were told to keep their eyes peeled.
Lo and behold, they came across the white Subaru Forester and thought it was going to be an easy night.
Western Australia police say: "Officers sighted the vehicle in the driveway on Birdwood Avenue and parked their marked Hilux behind it. As officers exited the Hilux it will be alleged the Forester reversed at speed, crashing into the rear pod section.
"The Forester then continued west on Birdwood Avenue where it crashed with a yellow Lamborghini at the intersection of Bland Street."
We've all seen police chases over the years and some of them end with the alleged offender crashing into another vehicle. Usually though, that car or truck is pretty ordinary.

The Lamborghini that was damaged in this chase is a Urus, which retails for a cool $400,000 in Australia at an entry level.
Who knows whether this car in question had any upgrades or cheeky modifications.
Police were baffled when they saw who was allegedly behind the wheel of the Subaru: a 14-year-old boy.
He allegedly tried to run away, however officers tracked him down and put him in handcuffs.
After being transported to the local police station, the teen has been charged with two counts of Steal Motor Vehicle, three counts of Stealing, one count of Aggravated Burglary and Commit and one count of Aggravated Burglary with Intent.
A spokesman for Barbagallo Motors, the only Lamborghini dealer in the state, has told the ABC that the city has fewer than 20 of the Lamborghini SUVs in Perth. No doubt the owner will be pissed.
It's unclear what will happen when the insurance companies get involved and whether it will be up to the teen to pay off the damage or his parents or guardians.
