Fairfax County Police said in a tweet on Saturday, July 14, at 5 p.m.:
“Purchased Friday. Totaled Saturday. This McLaren 720S, costing around $300,000, was destroyed Saturday in Great Falls because of speed. The driver was taken to the hospital with thankfully only non-life threatening injuries. A reminder to slow down, or it could cost you.”
Bud Morrissette said on Facebook: “[The driver} was heading to the Cars and Coffee event held every Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Katie’s/Old Brogue in Great Falls. I was there. Was standing 20 feet away from the rescue squad and the helicopter that air vac’d him to the hospital. Then I drove by the car leaving the event on Walker Road. He is lucky to be alive. You could see he came around a right hand corner too fast and the car just slid right from under him to the left and into the tree... driver side. Trees always win the battle.”
