A man wins a Lamborghini Murcielago and wrecked it after hours


Remember that few days ago we asked “What are you planning to do if you own a Lamborghini Murcielago?” In just few days we got another answer from an Utahan, the answer is “I will crash it!”

The Utahan, David Dopp, is truck driver and is also a father of six. He won a 650-hp lime green Lamborghini Murcielago on Saturday from a giveaway sponsored by Mavrick gas stations and teamgive.org. It was suppose to be a thanksgiving present but he wrecked it just after hours since he gets the key of a 650-hp exotic car.

As usual, when one get a huge lucky present like what Dopp gets, the neighborhood is going to celebrate with a convoy run with him in the exotic. Imagine that Dopp gets into a 650 hp from what he used to have. He may get a little bit excited with the power the car delivers. Dopp lost control during the ride. The car went over a curb and hopping off the road and stay 75 feet into the field. Luckily Dopp has a full insurance coverage otherwise he may have to pay a huge amount for the repair although the cost is still unknown.

A report says that the car bumper has been damaged, oil pan has been broken, but both passengers in the car are safe. One official says the accident was speed related but Dopp keep saying he hit a patch of black ice or gravel.

“Yeah, I got it on Saturday and I wrecked it on Saturday,” Dopp 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,” said the Lucky Winner.

The lucky winner describe the day as “An emotional roller coaster”. Drift King Keiichi Tsuchiya used to say, “What is power without control? It’s not all power boy!” Don’t believe what Keiichi says? You can see the 1.2 million Bugatti Veyron crashes into lake because of “angry birds”.

Although this is a Lamborghini, it isn’t the most expensive car crashes of the year of 2011 compared to the recent exotic car crashes in Japan.
