Charles Lewis Jr dies in Ferrari crash
Unfortunately, Charles Lewis Jr, the owner of the TapouT MMA clothing line has died in an automobile accident. Lewis was also known by the nickname "Mask" due to his constant face paint. The $300,000 Ferrari crashed into a light pole, ripping the car in half. Judging from the carbon fiber seats the vehicle looks to be a 360 Challenge Stradale.
The accident took place this morning at 1:00 AM. "Mask" was declared dead at the scene. A female passenger, who was ejected from the vehicle, was taken to a local hospital and remains in critical conditions. It is speculated that the Ferrari was racing another high performance vehicle, a Porsche, at the time of the accident.
A statement made by TapouT confirms Lewis’s death: "It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we must regretfully confirm the passing of our beloved friend, brother and co-founder Charles ‘Mask’ Lewis following a car accident that occurred last night. We are currently in the process of setting up a memorial service in his honor and will release more details as they become available. Many thanks to all for the outpouring of blessings."
