Utah Truck Driver Wins Lamborghini, Crashes It Within Hours: Video

Follow Nelson

When you spend all day driving Frito-Lay trucks, it's probably hard not to daydream about what it might be like to have something far more nimble, attractive, and valuable to wheel around. For Utah's David Dopp, that daydream became reality when he won a Lamborghini Murcielago valued at $300,000 in a contest.

The 631-horsepower supercar, delivered in bright lime green, was quickly photographed in Dopp's lightly-snowy front yard. Just a few hours later, however, it was backwards in a grassy field, having skidded from the road in the middle of a turn.

According to SantaQuin via Motoramic, the accident happened less than six hours after the car was delivered. Dopp says he was going between 40-50 mph in a 35 mph zone when the spin and subsequent wreck occurred. The elated Dopp was completely depressed by the time the sun went down, as the new Lambo's oil pan was punctured and the rear bumper was damaged.

Dopp says he just wasn't used to the power of a supercar. That's a fair statement given the Lambo's 205-mph top speed and shockingly quick acceleration. At the same time, you might expect a person to be rather more careful with their brand-new $300,000-dollar toy.

  1. Did this guy look at the small print; or many of you with ur comments Literature/Rules Says he won a 5,000$$$ Package to LEARN how to SAFELY drive the car. He could have waited; if not ONLY for other citizens/neighbors/family et. Hid friends r probably nicknamed him "Dope"/Dopp!!! Anyway, kinda ScArY knowing the guy is mentoring (6) children...Sooo; I say "Teach...Teach them WELL". Only mistake ya make is the one you don't learn from! My Father (R.I.P.) said so. Happy Holidays/Boston, Mass.

  2. I wonder what the taxes are against a winning like that? Not to mention what it will cost to repair the damage incurred!
