The father of an Ontario Carmax salesman who died during a test drive won't forgive the driver.
Warren Smale, 43, was a passenger in a high performance Corvette being driven by customer Alex Demetro, 28, when it crashed on Tuesday. Witnesses say the car was speeding in excess of 70 mph when it hit a tree.
Smale was rushed to an Ontario hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police say Demetro may have been under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash.
"There's no forgiveness. When you take drugs, you know what you're doing," Dennis Smale told ABC News affiliate KABC.
He said his son will be dearly missed by family and friends. "Fun, always knew what he wanted, always knew how to make you happy," Smale said.
Demetro was charged with vehicular manslaughter and felony suspicion of driving under the influence. He was later released on bail.
"It's a part of our job, the test drives," said co-worker Lydia Garrett. "I know Warren. He probably had no clue [that Demetro was impaired], I'm sure."
Broken glass and car parts still littered the crash site as friends gathered to remember Smale.
"That guy had no idea today would be his last day when he showed up to work today," said witness Paul Romo.
