Our friends at Jalopnik bring us the unfortunate story of a crash at this past weekend’s Cars and Coffee gathering in Dallas. While most crashes at these events are usually the caused by hooning gone bad, in this case, an unknown medical condition caused a woman to crash into these two Corvettes with her Camaro SS.
According to postings on several forums, the woman driving the Camaro SS was accompanied by her husband in the passenger seat and two kids in the back seat. Apparently, a seizure caused her to floor the Camaro’s gas pedal which launched her car into the blue C5 Corvette Z06, and as her foot was still on the gas, her Camaro pushed that Corvette into the yellow C6 Z06.
A member of the Camaro5 forum gives a first person account of the crash:
From the looks of it, the first vette is probably totaled. The [yellow] Z06 had minor damage, but the proud owner was pretty shaken up. From what I was told, the woman stayed on the gas full throttle just spinning until someone reached in and shut off the Camaro. Amazingly, no one was pinned or hurt. With the number of people around, I just don’t know how everyone was missed.
As many of the attendees show up to these events with cameras, a video was posted on youtube showing the immediate aftermath of the accident as emergency crews attend to the woman who was taken to the hospital on a stretcher while her husband was transported to hospital wearing a neck brace. The kids were not injured.
