This is a tale of winning and losing and a bright green Lamborghini.
Dave Dopp drives for a living — only he’s more comfortable behind the wheel of a long-haul truck than a Lamborghini, as events on Saturday prove. Dopp won a $300,000 Lamborghini in a contest — and crashed the car a mere six hours after picking it up.
Dopp won the car in a benefit fundraiser sponsered by the convience store chain Maverik, the Associated Press reports. Watch Dopp learn about the happy news last month at a Brigham Young University football game:
After Dopp picked up the car on Saturday, he spend the next six hours giving friends a chance to ride in the lime green car. Until the car hit a patch of black ice. The car flew off the road and crashed through a fence.
It’s been a rough month for luxury cars. With this crash coming on the heels of the eight-Ferrari pileup in Japan.
No one was injured — except for the winning car. Dopp said once the car is returned from the shop, he’ll be selling it and buying a more family-friendly ride.
And so goes one man’s short brush with joy riding.
