YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: The man who abandoned a crashed and burning Lamborghini in Fort Lee after getting off the George Washington Bridge yesterday was identified by Port Authority police tonight as Dean Ditchfield of Palisades Park, the CEO and president of Newark-based East Coast Auto Group.

The 33-year-old Ditchfield — whose real full name is Deankarte E. Ditchfield-Agboh — is due in Municipal Court in Fort Lee on Aug. 6 to answer charges of abandonment of a vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident.

The black 2008 Lamborghini “Murcielago” — which was made only between 2001 and 2010 — was found burning around 2 a.m. near Bridge Plaza North on the westbound New Jersey Turnpike, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo said.

Where it crashed and why — as well as what Ditchfield-Agboh was thinking — remained a mystery early this evening.
