A 26-year-old beauty queen died after the speeding Lamborghini she was a passenger in crashed and caught fire also killing the medical marijuana millionaire driver.

Stephanie Rivera Camarena succumbed to her injuries on Sunday after being ejected in the horror crash on Sunday in San Diego.

The young woman, who was crowned Miss Earth Baja California in 2015, was a passenger inside the luxury car being driven by 33-year-old Michael Llamas.

He was the founder of a hemp products empire who was weeks away from being sentenced in federal court for his role in a Ponzi scheme that cost victims more than $10 million, according to coroner’s officials and court records.

Police say Llamas was driving over 100mph in the green sports car when he lost control and crashed into a palm tree about 2am on Harbor Drive. The Lamborghini immediately burst into flames, KTLA reported.

Llamas, who was the former chief executive of Medical Marijuana Inc., a Poway-based company that sold health and beauty products made from ‘industrial hemp,’ was pronounced dead inside the vehicle.

The medical examiner’s office ruled Llamas’ death an accident.

The Tijuana model, who was a resident of Mexico, was described as a charismatic woman who had ‘championed a number of causes over the years,’ by Joaquin Meza, the director of the event.

A Facebook post on the pageant’s page reads: ‘A beautiful queen to heaven.

‘We express our deepest condolences to the Rivera family for the sensitive death of Stephanie Rivera, Miss Baja California State 2016, we ask God to find peace and resignation in their hearts.

‘A great woman, Bella on the outside and especially inside.

‘Queen in the whole extension of the word. Rest in peace’.

Authorities did not say if drugs or alcohol played a role in the deadly accident.

Back in 2012, Llamas stepped down from his position after he was indicted for his role in a mortgage fraud scheme.
