KSL-TV reports the lime green Murcielago Roadster will head to a Las Vegas body shop Wednesday for repairs, days after David Dopp won it from Maverik stores' "Joe Schmo to Lambo" contest.

Dopp says he was taking friends and family on joy rides Saturday when the vehicle hit ice or gravel and started spinning. The car hit some fence posts and came to rest in a field.

The Lamborghini has front-end damage, a punctured wheel and scratches along the passenger side.

Dopp wasn't injured in the crash and says the vehicle is insured.

He also says he'll be more careful next time.
