The car’s owner, Michael Power, was a passenger in the car and was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries. Det. Sgt. Michael Fitzharris tells Newsday that excessive speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. Of the test drive, Fitzharris says, “I think it was probably just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the kid, and this man chose to give him this opportunity.” source

Shepard’s father, Gene, tells the newspaper that Lamborghinis were his son’s favorite car.
