Two supercars rented for a wedding procession crashed when their drivers lost control in Sydney’s once-in-century storm.
A Porsche Carrera 911 was written off in Greystanes in the city’s west about 1.30pm 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 worth more than $200,000 was written off in the crash
The white Lamborghini was rented for a wedding procession when it was crashed
The tree that the white Lamborghini crashed into was knocked over
The Porsche that is valued at over $200,000 crashed on Gipps Street when witnesses said ended up on the wrong side of the road and hit the truck.
Ambulance and the fire brigade attended the scene as the driver was taken to hospital by private transport.
NSW Ambulances said the Porsche had two men in their 30s who were conscious and breathing when the ambulance arrived.
The crashes came as a result of the raging storms that have hit NSW with Premier Gladys Berejiklian calling the storms a ‘one in a 100 year event.’
The incessant rain has hit most of NSW with widespread flooding occurring and Sydney’s primary water source, Warragamba Dam overflowing.
As the rain continues to fall more than 30 homes in Sydney have been damaged as well as numerous evacuation orders to residents in Sydney’s western suburbs.
There has also been a number of road closures causing delays across the city.
The rain is expected to continue into next week until Wednesday.
Witnesses say that the driver of the Porsche lost control of the car before hitting the stationary truck
The white Lamborghini was towed away from the scene in Horsley Park
Debris from the written off Porsche was littered on the ground
