DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — Authorities are investigating how a Maserati from a car dealership ended up in a Highlands Ranch retention pond.

The car wasn’t reported as stolen and the male driver was found dead inside, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Mike Ward Maserati, the dealership where the vehicle came from, isn’t commenting on the incident and it’s still unclear if the man was a customer, staff member or neither.

A passerby spotted the vehicle in the pond just off C-470 between Lucent Boulevard and Santa Fe Drive at about 9:40 a.m. Saturday. Authorities believe reckless speeds contributed to the crash.
