UM student dies in crash 2 days after graduation

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - A man who had just received his business degree from the University of Miami has died in a car crash near the Coral Gables campus.

Coral Gables police say Dino Ghilotti graduated on Friday. He died in a car crash early Sunday morning.

Officials say Ghilotti was expected to join his family's construction firm, Ghilotti Construction in Santa Rosa, Calif.

Police say Ghilotti was a passenger in the vehicle. The driver, also a University of Miami student, was not severely injured.

University of Miami President Donna Shalala said in a statement that Ghilotti "had a bright future ahead of him."

A mass will be held in memory of Ghilotti at St. Augustine Catholic Church on Monday afternoon, followed by a reception at the Newman Alumni Center.
