This might be a great case of the glass being half full or half empty, depending on your perspective.

Half empty? The driver of this blue C5 Corvette convertible was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control and sent his sports car cannonballing into a ditch of nasty water near The Outlets mall in Pearl, Mississippi.

Half full? He was not injured and just got a little wet as he escaped from the Corvette.

Pearl Police Capt. Tim Sarrett took a photo of the accident scene, which he says “shows how lucky” the driver was. “He was able to get out, but he got wet,” the captain said.

Capt. Sarrett said the driver, whom he did not identify, “was driving way too fast into the curve and lost control.”

The accident happened around 4 p.m. Wednesday at Bass Pro Drive and Braves Way, across from the Trustmark Park north parking lot, the Holiday Inn, and The Outlets mall in Pearl.

The Corvette, a little soggier for the aquatic adventure, was removed from the water by a tow truck later in the afternoon.
