ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Lamborghini that was part of an exotic car racing attraction at Walt Disney World crashed into a guardrail, killing a passenger and injuring the driver.
The Florida Highway Patrol says 24-year-old Tavon Watson of Kissimmee lost control of the vehicle Sunday afternoon, killing 36-year-old Gary Terry of Davenport, Florida.
Sgt. Kim Montes says in an incident report that Watson failed to maneuver the high-powered vehicle through the Exotic Driving Experience course. The vehicle’s passenger side struck the guardrail. Terry died at the scene. Watson was taken to nearby Celebration Hospital, where he was treated and released.
The attraction lets racecar 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.
