The Lamborghini collided with the moped with such force that the moped became lodged underneath the car.

A police officer who responded to the scene noted that Rodriguez’s eyes were bloodshot and watery and the officer could smell alcohol.

Additionally, Rodriguez reportedly told a police officer “I killed someone.”

The female passenger, Sabrina Juenger, in the Lamborghini told police that they were “joyriding” and headed to a party. She admitted to a police officer that they were driving “like 100."

Police also spoke to two other people who were in a Lamborghini SUV that were headed to the same party.

They said that they were aware that Rodriguez had been drinking alcohol before driving. They also told police that Rodriguez accelerated the car he was driving and they lost sight of it immediately before the collision.

The Clark County coroner has identified the moped rider as 58-year-old Walter Richard Anderson of Las Vegas. Cause of death was blunt trauma.
