(Newser) – The Exotic Driving Experience at Walt Disney World in Orlando turned deadly when a driver lost control of a Lamborghini and crashed into a guardrail, the Florida Highway Patrol says. Passenger Gary Terry, the operations manager at the track, was pronounced dead at the scene yesterday afternoon and the 24-year-old driver was hospitalized with minor injuries, the Orlando Sentinel reports. At the track, which is operated by Petty Holdings, customers pay up to $400 to do a few laps in a high-end sports car with an instructor in the passenger seat, according to the AP. Earlier this year, officials announced that the Exotic Driving Experience would close at the end of June for "transportation improvements," WESH reports.
