Contest winner crashes Lamborghini

UPI News Service, 12/21/2011 

A Utah man who won a $380,000 Lamborghini Murcielago in a contest said he crashed the car about 6 hours after taking the keys.

David Dopp of Santaquin, who was announced as the winner of the Maverick gas station's "Joe Schmo to Lambo" contest during halftime of the Brigham Young University football game Nov. 12, said he received the car at a Saturday ceremony and only had the Lamborghini for about 6 hours before getting into an accident, KSL-TV, Salt Lake City, reported Wednesday.

"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 said. "We ended up in a field, and I back-ended a couple of fence posts."

There were no injuries, but the car sustained damage to its front end, a puncture in the wheel and scratches along the passenger side. Dopp said he had to have the vehicle towed from the scene.

Dopp said the car is being fixed at a Las Vegas body shop.

"That's what insurance is for," he said.
