ORLANDO, Florida - A white Lamborghini Gallardo, part of a sports car racing-attraction at Walt Disney World in Florida, crashed into a barrier, killing the passenger and injuring the driver on Sunday (April 12).

The driver, Tavon Watson (24), reportedly lost control of the performance car at the Disney Speedway. He was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The passenger, Gary Terry (36), was the operations manager at the Richard Petty driving experience track, reports Florida highway patrol.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Watson piloted the Gallardo around the track as part of a five to six lap "driving experience" with a professional driver riding shotgun.

The exotic driving experience attraction in Orlando allows sports car fans be drivers or passengers in luxurious cars such as Lamborghinis, Porsches or Ferraris.

The high-speed attraction in Orlando is named for Richard Petty (77), an iconic figure in Nascar history with seven Nascar Cup titles, seven Daytona 500 victories and a record 200 victories, including 27 in one season.

The track is set to close in June 2015 for scheduled improvements.
