Corvettes are known for their power.

This black 1974 Corvette is known now for its ability to knock out the power to nearly 700 customers after it collided with a utility pole over the weekend.

The 40-year-old driver of the classic C3 faces a charge of careless driving, according to Hamilton Police Chief Carol Pacey, after he rammed his car into a hydro pole near Hunter Street in the Dundas community in Ontario, Canada at approximately 11:15 a.m. Sunday.

The crash chopped the pole in two, and emergency crews took an hour to extract the driver from the Corvette and take him to General Hospital. Fortunately, his injuries weren’t believed to be life threatening.

Meanwhile, crews from Horizon Utilities had power back on by 5:30 p.m. for all the affected customers in the area bounded by York Road, Olympic Drive, King Street East and York Road.
