T-Bone Crash in Fort Lauderdale Causes Lamborghini SUV to Become Airborne
In what Fort Lauderdale residents said appeared to be a scene pulled right out of the pages of a Hollywood action film, a Lamborghini SUV caused an auto accident with another motorist this past Sunday afternoon before going airborne, slamming into the side of a duplex, and erupting into flames.
According to preliminary reports from members of the Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue, it was close to 3 p.m. on July 25, 2022, when Virginia resident William Dion McQueen, Jr. was driving a rented white 2021 Lamborghini Urus near the vicinity of the 1100 block of Northwest 7th Avenue. As he approached the street’s intersection with Seventh Avenue, the sport utility vehicle allegedly ran a stop sign which subsequently caused a T-bone collision with a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder that was being driven by Mohammad Iqbal.
Due to the sheer force of the initial collision, the luxury SUV went airborne before eventually coming to a stop when it crashed into the side of a residential duplex that was thankfully unoccupied. “It appears the car flew through the air about maybe 20 or 30 feet, landed on the roof of the house here, hit the tree, and fell to the ground and burst into flames,” said Assistant Fire Chief Timothy Heiser of the Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue. Statements retrieved from witnesses near the crash site said that the driver of the Lamborghini rental, William Dion McQueen, Jr., fled the scene after a good samaritan removed him from the wreckage.
Approximately thirty local first responders and officers in Fort Lauderdale responded to the scene of the accident. They were able to successfully extinguish the vehicle fire and provide medical assistance to the driver of the Nissan Pathfinder, Mohammad Iqbal, who suffered minor injuries during the incident.
After an undetermined amount of time had passed after the collision, the driver of the Lamborghini contacted the Fort Lauderdale Police Department from the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach. He stated that although he doesn’t recall much of the events leading up to the accident, he does vaguely remember that someone took him to a hotel before driving him to the hospital. He is said to be in full cooperation with local authorities.
This collision is currently under investigation by the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.
