[ACCIDENT] C4 Corvette Rolls Over and Lands in Swamp

A Friday afternoon crash sent the driver of this 1987 Corvette to the hospital. The man was driving near Tiverton, RH when his Corvette left the road and went into a swampy area, rolled on its roof and trapped the driver under it.

When rescuers showed up, it took 40 minutes to free the trapped driver. He was airlifted to a Rhode Island Hospital with serious injuries.

Tiverton Fire Chief Robert Lloyd said they called in a heavy tow truck to assist in lifting the car straight up so they could extricate the driver. Police said he was conscious and alert.

The tow truck was then used to right the heavily damaged Corvette and it was towed from area.
