An orange Lamborghini Murcielago sports car caught fire after it crashed into a lamp post outside an Etonhouse pre-school at Outram Road, at 3.40pm on Friday 24th May 2013 Vesak Day.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it received a call for assistance at 2.10 pm, when the sports car crashed into a lamp post (pictured). Although an ambulance was dispatched, the driver of the Lamborghini had declined to be taken to a hospital. One and a half hours later, SCDF said it received another call for assistance as the sports car had caught fire in the same location. The fire was extinguished in 10 minutes. There were no injuries
