Footage has emerged of an inattentive driver smashing into a Lamborghini Huracan at high speed on a Chinese motorway.

    Carscoops reports the video of the collision first surfaced on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

    The video begins with the driver of the Lamborghini already outside the vehicle and directing oncoming traffic away from the supercar.

    The driver then looks under the bonnet of the car for a few seconds before sticking his head back out and continuing to signal oncoming drivers of the hazard on the road.

    The Huracan has its hazard lights on to signify the vehicle is not moving and appears to be stopped in the fast lane of the highway.

    Moments later, the driver is seen waving his hands in the air and then running across the multi-lane highway as an SUV comes barrelling down and strikes the stricken Lamborghini.

    According to Carscoops, the offending vehicle is a Geely Xingyue L (Monjaro) SUV which sits on Volvo’s CMA platform and is a similar size to a Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.

    According to Geely’s website, the SUV features a comprehensive safety suite including autonomous emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. It’s unclear why the AEB didn’t activate, or why the driver didn’t notice the stopped Lamborghini.

    The impact sees the Geely hop and turn 360 degrees, while the Lamborghini is rammed into the railing and then slides across all three lanes.

    The video shows vehicle fluid and debris spread across three lanes of the highway.

    The condition of the Geely driver isn’t known.
