Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to loan someone your Corvette.
Take, for example, this wreck on Airport Road in St. George, Utah on Saturday afternoon that ended with a C6 on its top, blocking traffic for an hour and sending the passenger to the hospital with minor injuries.
The 21-year-old driver of the black Corvette was not injured, but his passenger, a 19-year-old female, had to be carried to Dixie Regional Medical Center for treatment.
The owner of the car, who was attending the Dixie Dragz drag racing competition at the old airport grounds, had loaned the car to the driver.
The passenger, in a post to the website where we found this story, explained that they were driving down the hill, pulled over, came to a complete stop, and then proceeded to make a U-turn.
“He hit the gas (like anyone else would do for incline for that hill),” she wrote, “BUT this car had twin turbos and has a 5 sec lag and when the turbo kicked in we lost control, after that is a complete blank to me idk how we flipped.”
Regardless, the driver earned two citations for the accident from the St. George Police Department – driving too fast for road conditions and making an illegal U-turn.
