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

December 20, 2011
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.
