Five car pile-up sends five to the hospital in NW Harris County.
If you’re not a Corvette aficionado you might not tell that this used to be a C4.
It seems the driver of this Corvette decided to make a U-turn across six lanes of traffic and in the process caused a five-car pile-up, officials in northwest Harris County in Texas said.
The crash sent six people to the hospital around 9 p.m. Saturday at FM 1960 and Gilder.
“A gentleman in a Corvette was heading eastbound to Willowbrook mall, when he decided to do a U-turn across six lanes of traffic at FM 1960 and Gilder,” said Chief Lieder with the Cypress Creek Volunteer Fire Department.
The Corvette was t-boned by a Ford Expedition, and a Chevy Impala then crashed into them both, turning upside down in the process. In an attempt to miss the wrecked cars, two others crashed into a guardrail.
The Corvette driver is in critical condition at Ben Taub Hospital, and five others ended up with non-life threatening injuries.
