CarMax salesman killed when Corvette crashes in test drive; driver arrested

 Ontario, California – 43-year-old Warren Smale of Montclair, was taken to hospital in critical condition, where he was later pronounced dead from his injuries

CarMax released a statement later Tuesday evening saying they are working closely with local police in the investigation.

“Today is an incredibly sad day for the CarMax family. Our hearts and prayers go out to our associate’s family,” the company statement said.

The man arrested was allegedly under the influence of drugs when he crashed a Corvette into a tree during a test drive Tuesday with a CarMax salesman. The salesman later died of his injuries, police said.

Alex Mark Demetrio, 28, of Union City, was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and felony driving under the influence of drugs, said Sgt. Jeff Higbee of the Ontario Police Department.
