Teen Killed After Crashing Lamborghini During Test Drive

An 18-year-old died in a tragic crash in New York while taking a test drive in a Lamborghini Gallardo.

According to Newsday, Samuel Shepard was killed Friday when he lost control of the 2010 Gallardo on a highway in Mount Sinai, NY.

The car was owned by 49-year-old Michael Power, a friend of Shepard and his family, who reportedly met Shepard at a parking lot and offered to let him drive the Lamborghini. Power was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

“I think it was probably just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the kid, and this man chose to give him this opportunity,” said Det. Sgt. Michael Fitzharris of the Sixth Precinct.

Police haven’t determined the speed the vehicle was traveling when the accident occurred yet, but Fitzharris said, “I would suspect it was excessively fast.”
