Florida Woman And Friend Die In Head-On Highway Crash In Lamborghini
A 24-year-old Kissimmee woman and her passenger were killed Sunday when the Lamborghini she was driving crossed into oncoming traffic on a Lakeland boulevard and crashed into another vehicle, police reported.
Killed were driver Tiffany Ann Beene and Samuel Jonathan Hampton, the 24-year-old from Winter Haven who owned the Lamborghini.
Beene is the daughter of missionaries Michael and Roxanne Beene, who founded Faith In Action, a Kissimmee non-profit that focuses on building churches, schools and clinics in remote villages in Guatemala, according to its website.
According to corporate records, Tiffany served as company treasurer.
Two people in the car she hit were injured. Chi Yan Chan, 43, of St. Petersburg, the other driver, was in critical condition at Lakeland Regional Medical Center, police reported. His passenger, Tan P. Phan, 22, of Pinellas Park, was treated and released.
The Lamborghini was traveling west on University Boulevard about 3 p.m. when it crossed the median into the path of Luu’s Nissan, police reported. The impact spread debris for 1,000 feet.
Police said there is no indication Beene and Chan were racing. They were traveling in opposite directions.
All four people were wearing seat belts, police reported.
What the hell was that girl doing behind the wheel of a car she had no idea how to drive?! A Lamborghini isn’t a RAV4…
Condolences to all the families involved.
