Two men die in high-speed, 3-car Phila. crash

Police last night were investigating a double-fatal crash involving a Lamborghini and two other vehicles on Essington Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia.

Police said the accident happened about 6:25 p.m. on the 7700 block of Essington. The Lamborghini, heading south on Essington at a high rate of speed, went into the northbound lanes and crashed with a Plymouth Voyager, then was hit by a Subaru Outback.

The drivers of the other two vehicles were OK, police said. The two men in the Lamborghini, the 29-year-old driver and his 54-year-old passenger, were declared dead at the scene. Their names were not released. - Traver Riggins

2 dead in sports-car crash

Twisted metal, shattered glass and spattered blood littered the scenes of two car crashes in separate sections of the city yesterday.

The first accident proved fatal for two people in Southwest Philadelphia.

Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said a 29-year-old Media man lost control of his speeding Lamborghini on Essington Avenue near Bartram and crossed into the opposite lane of traffic about 6:30 p.m.

The Lamborghini was struck by two other vehicles and ended up in a crumpled heap on the side of the road.

The driver of the sports car and his 60-year-old male passenger died at the scene, Small said. Their names were not released.

The drivers of the two other vehicles were treated at an area hospital for minor injuries.

"Apparently, the Lamborghini had just been purchased the day before," Small said.

Investigators believed the car might have been traveling at more than 90 mph when the crash occurred.

"It took rescuers over an hour to get them out of the vehicle," Small noted.

Delco man was driver in sports-car crash that killed 2

Philadelphia police last night identified the driver of the Lamborghini sports car who lost control Friday in Southwest Philadelphia, killing himself and his passenger, as Adam Brown, 29, of Media.

Brown, a former police officer in Brookhaven, was president of a home-health-care franchise based in Drexel Hill.

The $450,000 Lamborghini was speeding south on Essington Avenue about 6:25 p.m. when it went into the northbound lanes in the 7700 block and struck a Plymouth Voyager, then was hit by a Subaru Outback, investigators said. The other two drivers were not injured.

Brown was driving too fast for conditions and appeared to have lost control of the car, police said. Police said they would not identify the 60-year-old passenger because he has no known living relatives. - Joseph A. Slobodzian

Nor any friends or acquaintances presumably - WTF sort of procedure is that?

After reading this article, I now wonder about all of the wrong and incorrect information that the news publish…

Correction for article #1, paragraph #2, last sentence.

The US$450,000 Lamborghini was speeding south on Essington Avenue about 6:25 p.m. when it went into the northbound lanes in the 7700 block and struck a Plymouth Voyager, then was hit by a Subaru Outback, investigators said. The other two drivers were “severly injured and in critical condition…One of the drivers, by name of “Uncle Bruce” passed away this morning”.

I believe that if the police and news are going to state “their so called facts and put them in bold print in paper and on the internet, then I believe that they should be correct.

I’m sorry for the losses of all the families and friends that have to deal with this tragedy. This should be a wake up call to everyone “that speeding not only can cause accidents, but can take lives away as well”…It’s not worth it!

R.I.P Bruce and may God be with you…My prayers go out to your family and friends as well as the other people involved in this accident!

Sports car crash kills 2 in SW Philly

By STEPHANIE FARR
Philadelphia Daily News

Former Brookhaven police officer Adam Brown and his wife, Michelle, marked their fifth wedding anniversary on Thursday.


The parents of two were to celebrate the milestone Saturday by going out in style in a 2005 red Lamborghini that Brown had rented for the event.

But instead of a day of celebration, Saturday became a day of mourning after Brown and his passenger, Geoffrey Kleiman, were killed in a crash in the Lamborghini Friday night in Southwest Philadelphia.

Police released the identity of the men yesterday. Kleiman, 60, of Broomall, was a friend and business associate of Brown, 29, of Media, who founded his in-home care business, Home Helpers, before resigning from the Brookhaven police force in 2004.

"Everybody was a friend to Adam," Michelle Brown said, "and everybody was family."

According to police, Brown was speeding on Essington Avenue near Bartram when he lost control of the Lamborghini during a turn and crossed over into oncoming traffic.

The Lamborghini was struck by a Mercury Villager minivan and a Subaru Forester.

Brown and Kleiman were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the minivan, a 41-year-old man, was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he remains in critical condition with wounds to his chest, abdomen and leg, police said.

The driver of the Forester, a 45-year-old man, suffered only minor injuries.

"I just don't think he knew how fast that car was," Michelle Brown said.

Brown was just 19 when he joined the Brookhaven police in 1999. He was on the force for five years and, in 2002, while still serving as a cop, he also founded Home Helpers of Drexel Hill to provide nonmedical home care to seniors, working parents and those needing recuperative services.

"He just enjoyed helping people," Michelle Brown said. "His grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's and that's what drove him to open this business.

"He was actually able to help her through the business."

Brown retired from the police force in 2004 to devote more time to his family and Home Helpers, his wife said.

The couple has two children, a 4-year-old girl and a 14-month-old boy.

"Every day he just wanted us to be happy," Michelle Brown said. "And I can say, for him, that he lived every day to the fullest." *

Third Person Dies in Lamborghini Crash

Updated 8:15 AM EDT, Tue, Jun 23, 2009

Police said Brown was going too fast when he lost control of the car.


 Adam Brown rented a Lamborghini to take his wife out on the town for their fifth wedding anniversary. But before the big celebration Saturday, a devastating crash killed him and two others when the exotic sports car slammed into oncoming traffic.

"I just don't think he knew how fast that car was," his wife, Michelle Brown told the Daily News.

Brown, 29, was speeding along Essington Avenue near Bartram when he lost control during a turn and crashed into a minivan and another vehicle, according to police.

The driver of the minivan, Bruce Hunter, 41, suffered serious injuries and died at the hospital Monday morning.

He had just  left work at Singer Equipment Co. in Southwest Philadelphia at 6p.m. Friday and headed home to Darby, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

At about 7 p.m., the Lamborghini crashed into Hunter's minivan, the paper reported.

The crash also took the life of Brown's passenger, Geoffrey Kleiman, 60, of Broomall. The two were friends and did business together.


Brown was with the Brookhaven police department from 1999 to 2004 when he left to devote more time to Home Helpers, an in-home health care business he started.
