|David Dopp with his Lamborghini|
(Scroll down for video) A man who won a Lamborghini crashed it after only 6 hours of driving it.
A truck driver for Frito-Lay in Utah, David Dopp, won a Lamborghini Murcielago in a shop contest at a convenience store recently.
Six hours after receipt of the luxury car, it crashed. Before that even happened, he was detained by police for driving too fast. After that, he went out of control after hitting a patch of black ice which caused the vehicle to fly 75 feet off the road.
Reports indicate that he was going somewhere between 40 to 50 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone. Driving a Murcielago is not the same as driving a delivery truck for Frito-Lay, no matter how good of a driver one claims to be. According to some reports, insurance fraud may have been a key reason.
Here's why: to pay car insurance, Dopp had to put his home up for collateral. According to a source he is waiting for the car to be declared totaled in order to obtain the insurance payment, which comes in at about $300,000. This same source also said that he would sell the car regardless because taxes, which could be more than $100,000.
People have urged him to sell the car to Jay Leno before he totaled it, according to reports. So is this fraud? It is difficult to prove, but the story tells us that people who cannot afford to buy a super car should simply not accept such a car even if it is for free.
