LAKELAND, Fla. -

Authorities say two people died in central Florida when the Lamborghini they were riding in hit another car.

Lakeland police say 24-year-old Tiffany Beene was driving the green 2008 Lamborghini Sunday afternoon when she crossed over the grass median into oncoming traffic, where she hit a white 2013 Nissan. Beene and her passenger, 24-year-old Samuel Jonathan Hampton, were transported to a nearby hospital, where they died that evening.

The Nissan's driver, 43-year-old Chi Yan Chan, was critically injured and remained hospitalized Monday. Chan's passenger, 22-year-old Tan Phan, was also hospitalized, but the injuries weren't considered life-threatening.

Officers reported that debris from the wreck was found nearly 1,000 feet from the point of impact. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
