A Lamborghini driver has been accused of driving under the influence when he hit and killed a man on a moped on the evening of June 9th.
The driver of the Lamborghini, Andrew James Rodriguez, 33, was reportedly traveling 141 mph in a 45 zone just before the crash. Police claim the vehicle slowed to 127 mph by the time it struck the moped.
Las Vegas resident operating the moped, Walter Anderson, 58, was killed in the incident.
Officers immediately suspected that Rodriguez was drinking prior to the incident due to his eye color and his strong odor of alcohol.
“The Lamborghini collided with the rear of the moped with such force that the moped became lodged under the right front of the Lamborghini,” officers said.
Rodriguez does not possess a valid drivers license and is not the owner of the Lamborghini.
He was arrested on suspicion of DUI causing death, reckless driving, and driving without a valid license. Rodriguez was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and later released on $75,000 bail on the condition he doesn’t drive and submits to alcohol monitoring.
Neither Rodriguez nor the other passenger of the vehicle suffered serious injuries in the incident.
