A certain Navid Alpha, an Instagram influencer with more than 1.1 million followers, was behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Aventador S which crashed into a Skoda and an Opel.
The accident, which occurred on the A66 near Hofheim in Germany, killed the driver of the Skoda, which caught fire on the motorway.
The influencer was participating in a street race between two Lamborghinis and a Porsche 911 GT3 when the accident took place. This summer, we also reported a violent accident between a Nissan Sentra and a Tesla Model X. A Tesla Model 3 was also able to narrowly avoid an accident thanks to its instantaneous acceleration.
Video of the incident filmed by a car driving behind the three sports cars shows that both Lamborghinis and the Porsche were participating in what appears to be a motorway race before the crash. We can also see a plume of smoke in the distance on another video, seconds after the drama.

Navid Alpha would have lost control of the vehicle
According to local media, the driver of the Lamborghini lost control and crashed into the crash barrier before crashing into a Skoda and an Opel, who were not involved in the race. The Skoda and Lamborghini both caught fire, and although the driver of the Lamborghini managed to get out of the vehicle, the driver of the Skoda died.
Alpha and the Opel driver were hospitalized with injuries, and the influencer was immediately taken into custody. However, he would have been released since, because the police cannot prove that an illegal race took place. Indeed, it seems that the accident took place on a section of the motorway with no speed limit.
In the influencer Instagram story, you could see videos of him at 200 km / h on the highway with one hand on the wheel and the other hand holding his phone to film. For now, investigators are still looking for the driver of the second Lamborghini involved in the alleged race.
