Motorcyclist killed after trying to race Lamborghini, LAPD says

A motorcyclist was killed Sunday morning when he allegedly tried to race a Lamborghini near the Beverly Center, police said.

Police told KLTA News the incident occurred on La Cienega Boulevard when the motorcyclist pulled up to the sports car and tried to race.

The driver of the Lamborghini refused, and the motorcyclist sped off and struck the back of a BMW near Warning Avenue, police said.

“When he took off, he unfortunately didn’t see a vehicle that was up ahead of him and he collided into the rear of that vehicle,” LAPD Capt. Rolando Solano told the station.

Police continued to investigate, and no arrests have been made.
