Popular Chinese actor Li Yifeng crashed a Lamborghini race car in downtown Beijing in the early hours of Friday morning, his agent confirmed.

Li was going to his parents' home when his Lamborghini race car hit a pillar under the Dajiaoting Bridge in eastern Beijing at around 3:00 a.m.

After making sure no one was injured, Li called an insurance company to handle the necessary matters and left the scene. He then caught a plane to Monaco.

Li's studio issued an online statement later on Li's behalf. It said that the trip to Monaco was arranged long before the crash, and that Li was not drunk when the crash took place.

Li said he is sorry for his actions and is willing to receive the corresponding punishment.

No one was hurt and no public property was damaged in the crash, the statement said.

However, Li's Lamborghini was found to carry a temporary license, which has been invalid for two weeks. He may be fined 200 yuan (US$30.5) for using an expired temporary license according to the law.

Li gained fame in 2007 on the popular "My Hero" TV talent show. In 2014, he garnered the "Most Commercially Valuable Actor" award. He was ranked ninth on the 2015 Forbes Chinese Celebrity list with an estimated revenue of 69 million yuan.
