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
