According to People.com, the two individuals who lost their lives in a fiery Lamborghini crash is a business owner, photographer, and entrepreneur Joel David White and his Girlfriend Luiza Vaagnova Karakhanyan.

I move so fast sometimes that I forget to look how far I’ve come. These past couple months have been some of the best months of my life. Sometimes I feel like I don’t give myself enough credit and I think that comes from seeing how much I still have to learn and experience. I mean I’m only 25. At the end of the day, I just thank God for always guiding me in the right direction. I thank Him for allowing me the FREEDOM to be able to follow my passion. I have the best job in the world. 📷: @aaaiah
Presumably, Joel’s main line of work came from his franchise of Luxury Rentals Los Angeles, a franchise and offshoot of Elite Luxury Rentals, a Florida based car rental company catering to creatives, influencers, and, moguls who need a luxury or supercar at a moment’s notice
Luiza Vaagnova Karakhanyan a.k.a. Louisa Karakh was, according to her LinkedIn, a UCLA student three years into her Psychology degree projected to graduate later next year. In addition to working for her university, Louisa was a self-made photographer. Also, her online resume lists half a dozen volunteering experiences, many over a year in involvement.
Luiza is also probably most known online as @LouisaKarakh.
According to KTLA, Joel planned to pick up his good friend from the airport later that night and his friend texting him repeatedly to see where he was as it was uncommon for him not to respond.
Before the crash, both Joel and Luisa were traveling 100MPH or more along Sepuleveda Basin.
In a police report provided by the Los Angeles Daily News,
“The Jeep was negotiating a left turn on Burbank Boulevard just east of Hayvenhurst Avenue,” police said. “The force of the collision caused the Lamborghini to lose control, colliding with trees and causing it to split, ejecting the male driver.”
Here’s the intersection in question.
Burbank Blvd, right along the Sepulveda Basin and as illustrated in the Google Map above, is a four-lane stretch of road separated by a concrete planter on both sides.
Although no one should be traveling triple-digit speeds on public roads, not to mention city streets, with a protected lane of travel and in an exotic Lambo like a Huracan, it’s understandable that he was going so fast in that particular area. It’s unfortunate that the Jeep Cherokee was there when he was going full gas.
Here’s the exact Huracan in the crash.
It’s a sad situation overall and a sobering reminder to be vigilant as a driver whenever you’re on the road.
