A Lamborghini that was part of an exotic car racing attraction at Palm Beach County crashed into a guardrail, killing a passenger and injuring the driver.
The Florida Highway Patrol says a 24-year old man of nearby Limestone Creek lost control of the vehicle, killing a 36-year old man from Florida.
An FHP Sergeant said in an incident report that the driver failed to maneuver the high-powered vehicle through the Exotic Driving Experience course. The vehicle’s passenger side struck the guardrail. The passenger died at the scene. The driver was taken to nearby Palm Beach County Hospital, where he was treated and released.
The attraction lets race car fans be drivers or passengers in luxurious cars such as Lamborghinis, Porsches or Ferraris. For between $200 and $400, customers can drive several laps with a professional driving instructor in the passenger seat. It is located south of the Lake Park parking lots.
In a statement, the company said: “On behalf of everyone in the organization, it is with a very heavy heart that we extend our deepest sympathies to those involved in today’s tragic accident in Palm Beach County.”
Florida Highway Patrol Officials said the crash remains under investigation.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a Lamborghini, which ultimately, resulted in the death of a passenger and injuries to the driver. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
