What a brutal hand of cards this girl was dealt in life. To survive a terrorist attack, only to be killed by a drunk driver on vacation.
The driver of a Ferrari which crashed killing Boston Marathon bombing survivorVictoria McGrath and her college roommate in Dubai had been drinking before the incident, an official said.
The yellow Ferrari 458 Spider mounted a curb, split in two and then “lit on fire” on Sunday, Dubai’s Chief Traffic Prosecutor Salah Bu Farousha Al Falasi told NBC News.
The car’s four occupants were thrown from the two-seater vehicle during the crash, he added.
“All were drinking alcohol,” Al Falasi told NBC News on Wednesday, adding that while police could not confirm exactly the car’s speed “they were driving fast.”
The victims likely died from the impact and not the fire, he said.
Earlier, one witness said that the vehicle had slammed into a pole.
Before the collision, Nixon Tweeted a photograph of himself with his rented sports car. He wrote, “Just landed into Dubai picked up the Ferrari! Don’t worry I won’t speed ;)”
