Aston Martin Vanquish crash

The driver of the $500,000 car fled the scene after crashing into a tram stop

A female driver has fled the scene of a spectacular crash in Melbourne’s CBD this morning, losing control of a $500,000 Aston Martin Vanquish which crashed head-first into a tram stop on Collins Street.

At about 12:30 am, police were alerted to a crash that occurred after the driver lost control after a left turn, ending up in the middle-of-the-road tram stop.

Result? One very banged-up car.
