You’d like to think that your Corvette and motorcycle are safe when they’re parked in your own driveway and garage, wouldn’t you?
But not always.
A black on black C4 convertible and a motorcycle unwittingly became the victims of a four-vehicle pileup in Moscow, Idaho last week.
Police believe a 24-year-old driving drunk instigated the chain-reaction crash that caused an estimated $25,000 in damage at 3 a.m. Thursday, July 18.
The chain of events began on Quail Run Drive when the man crashed his SUV into a pickup truck, causing it to strike the Corvette parked in a driveway across the street. The Corvette then rolled into the garage and damaged a motorcycle parked inside.
Neighbor Lianne Wappett told KLEW-TV that it was “just an unbelievable night.”
“We actually had the whole block was out here watching, and just couldn’t believe how much damage one person could cause,” Wappett said.
The driver walked away from the crash, but he was taken to Gritman Medical Center to be treated for minor injuries. No word on any charges he’s facing, but police are waiting on the results of a blood test to decide if he was drunk.
