Utah driver David Dopp won a $380,000 Lamborghini Murcielago on Saturday and then managed to crash the sports machine just six hours later.
Speaking about the accident Dopp told KSL.com:
“Yeah, I got it on Saturday and I wrecked it on Saturday.”
The car was part of the “Joe Schmo to Lambo” contest that was put together by local convenience store chain Maverik and teh nonprofit organization teamgive.
Dopp actually found out about his victory last month during a BYU football game and then had to wait for his change to drive the car.
After receiving the keys to his sweet new ride he began giving rides to family members and friends at which point the accident occured.
Recalling the series of events that led to the collision David said:
“We were coming up a hill, going around a corner; and as soon as we came up the hill, we either hit some black ice or loose gravel or something, and all of a sudden we just started spinning.” Dopp adds, “We ended up in a field, and I back-ended a couple of fence posts.”
Thankfully David Dopp has car insurance on the vehicle which will pay for the damages.
In the meantime he also won $5,000 worth of driving lessons for his new car, lessons he might want to seriously consider accepting at this time.
Would you have taken the $5,000 driving lessons before stepping behind the wheels of a sports vehicle that cost more than the price of a home for many people?
