    Sometimes, speeding can seriously cost you.

    A Northern Virginia driver totaled a newly purchased sports car by driving too fast and hitting a tree on Saturday, police say.

    Fairfax County police posted a photo of the badly mangled $300,000 McLaren 720S leaning up against a relatively unscathed tree near a two-lane road in Great Falls, Virginia.

    "Purchased Friday. Totaled Saturday," the Facebook post said.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Police attributed the crash to excessive speed and reminded drivers to slow down.

    The driver was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police say.
