Adam Brown rented a Lamborghini to take his wife out on the town for their fifth wedding anniversary. But before the big celebration Saturday, a devastating crash killed him and two others when the exotic sports car slammed into oncoming traffic.
"I just don't think he knew how fast that car was," his wife, Michelle Brown told the Daily News.
Brown, 29, was speeding along Essington Avenue near Bartram when he lost control during a turn and crashed into a minivan and another vehicle, according to police.
The driver of the minivan, Bruce Hunter, 41, suffered serious injuries and died at the hospital Monday morning.
He had just left work at Singer Equipment Co. in Southwest Philadelphia at 6p.m. Friday and headed home to Darby, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
At about 7 p.m., the Lamborghini crashed into Hunter's minivan, the paper reported.
The crash also took the life of Brown's passenger, Geoffrey Kleiman, 60, of Broomall. The two were friends and did business together.
