FAIRFAX, Va. — One driver made a very, very expensive mistake.

Fairfax, Virginia police posted a photo on its Facebook page Saturday of a sports car nearly wrapped around a tree.

The McLaren can reach speeds of up to 212 mph. It’s unclear how fast the driver was going at the time of the crash.

The police department ended the Facebook post by saying, “A reminder to slow down, or it could cost you.”
