    On March 2, 1983, Chandon, a member of the New York-based Fred Opert Racing Team, was killed while driving a Ralt Formula Atlantic race car in a private practice session at Moroso Motorsport Park in West Palm Beach, Florida, while preparing for the upcoming Formula Atlantic season.
    More Details Hide Details Traveling over 100 miles per hour, Chandon's vehicle crashed through a barrier, fell into a canal and landed upside down, where he was pinned in his car at the feet and drowned in an otherwise survivable accident. Cause of the accident could not be determined - either the throttle stuck or it was a case of driver error. Chandon had a romantic relationship with model Christie Brinkley. The two first met at Studio 54 where she was holding a party to promote the 1982 Christie Brinkley calendar and than they became an "item" for the gossip magazines. Chandon had phoned her less than an hour before the accident to arrange to meet her in Palm Beach that evening. When told of the accident, a distraught Brinkley stayed in California. Olivier Chandon is buried in the Laferté-sur-Aube cemetery, in Haute-Marne, France.
