SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Nov. 7, 2017) — Michael Llamas, 33, has been identified as the man driving a green Lamborghini who died in a solo high-speed crash on Harbor Drive, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
His passenger, a fashion model identified as Stephanie Rivera from Tijuana, Mexico died at University of San Diego Medical Center two days later.
The collision was reported about 2 a.m. near West Broadway. Llamas was reportedly speeding, veered off the roadway and struck a palm tree. The vehicle burst into flames.
His female passenger was ejected during the crash and was found near the burning vehicle. She was hospitalized and later died of her injuries.
Llamas was the founder and CEO of Medical Marijuana Inc. in Poway, but he stepped down in 2012 and was later accused of involvement in a Ponzi scheme in 2015.
