It’s always saddening to hear about fatalities resulting from car crashes, but these sorts of incidents are perhaps most distressing when they occur during leisure activities such as this one:
Autoblog reports that a 36 year-old driving passenger was killed on the Disney Speedway when the 24 year-old driver of a Lamborghini lost control of the car, crashing into a guard-rail.
The Disney Speedway is located inside the Disney World theme park in Orlando, Florida, and offers an Exotic Driving Experience to tourists who want to try their hands at piloting some of the world’s most notable supercars. Tavon Watson was one such tourist, who was lapping the Disney Speedway track in a white Lamborghini when he lost control of the car, resulting in the fatality of passenger and driving instructor Gary Terry.
The Disney Speedway attraction is private property, but nonetheless, the Florida Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation into the accident. Autoblog reports that Disney World officials had revealed some months ago their intent to possibly close the attraction in order to make way for better transportation to the adjacent parks. After this tragic accident, that decision would seem all the more unsurprising.
