I just learned from my mother yesterday that Vasek Polak has died.
He owns (or owned) a couple of dealerships in Redondo Beach & Hermosa Beach,
CA which sell Porsche, Audi, VW, BMW, Saab, and Subaru.
Apparently he was in Germany, driving a car (a test vehicle or new model of
some sort) that Porsche had loaned him, and he hit an abuttment at 120mph.
Amazingly he survived that, but with both legs broken and many other
injuries. He has donated many dollars to the hospital for which my mom works
and wanted to be transferred back there. A learjet was arranged and during a
refueling stop in Montana, he died.
I don't know any more than this. Can anyone confirm or contradict?
