Today’s story involves the tragic situation that occurred in Colorado, as a car salesman from a Maserati store was found dead following a car accident.

According to an AP report, On Friday, January 13, Brandon Gianopoulos, a 24-year old salesman at Mike Ward Maserati out of Denver, Colorado died in an auto accident. Investigators suspect the crash may have occurred due to the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. Part of the reason speed is a suspected reason for the crash is this live video Gianopoulos posted to Facebook on the evening of January 13, showing someone behind the wheel of a Maserati going from 0-111 miles per hour in just around twenty seconds. Gianopoulos was found inside of a 2017 Maserati on January 14, when according to KUSA, “a passer-by spotted” the vehicle in a retention pond. The crash site was reportedly around one mile away from Mike Ward Maserati.

Mark Ward Maserati provided the following statement to CBS Denver saying in part, “It is impossible for us to understand why these things happen and we are all extremely saddened by this tragedy.” We at DrivingSalesNews wish to express our sincerest condolences to the family and loved ones of Brandon Gianopoulos following this tragedy.

    Chock up another Facebook related tragedy. Who knew Mark Zuckerberg would have created a platform that people would risk killing themselves to be on, just for that quick fleeting moment of fame and the rush. Man, I hope Zuckerberg read this.

    Yeah, it’s Facebook’s fault that this guy took a Maserati from work and pisted a live video of his reckless driving. It’s his fault and his stupidity.

    Obviously heart and prayers go out to family and friends but there’s a time and place for everything and being one of a car salesperson for almost 20 years and that of a car enthusiasts one my say….. One always makes that final decision after thought which is that line one crosses or stays aside and your odds go down from there… no fingers should be pointed at anyone besides that of one participated….
