A car crash over the weekend in Dubai that killed two Northeastern University students also reportedly killed a Canadian boxer who had earlier posted an Instagram photo of him posing with a yellow Ferrari.

Canadian boxer Cody Nixon and a man believed to be Nixon’s cousin were killed in the crash along with Boston Marathon bombing survivor Victoria McGrath and her roommate, Priscilla Perez Torres, according to media reports.

The women were riding in a yellow two-seat Ferrari that crashed into a pole, according to Perez Torres’s cousin, Javier Torres.

Nixon had rented the Ferrari, and a few hours before the crash he posed with the luxury car in an Instagram photo captioned, “Just landed into Dubai picked up the Ferrari! Don’t worry I won’t speed ;)”


Other details of the crash were not available.
