A 61-year-old Corvette driver and father of four grown children out for a pleasure cruise Sunday, May 4 after he had just finished mowing his lawn turned out to be the victim of a hit-and-run accident in Concord, N.C.
Silvio Joseph Cadolino was listed in critical condition as of Friday, May 9 at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, and police are asking for witnesses to come forward and help them track down the driver of the minivan that caused the wreck.
Cadolino’s C4 Corvette wound up on its top after being struck by a Ford Aerostar or similar vehicle that did not stop or even call 911.
Cadolino was traveling south on Concord Parkway about 4:15 p.m. when his Corvette was hit by the northbound minivan which was turning onto Carpenter Court from Concord. Police believe the minivan probably has minor damage to the left front quarter or bumper area.
Beth Bruce has lived next door to the Caldolino family for 16 years and told a WSOC-TV reporter “my heart breaks for the family and we’re all praying for them. I saw him just before his accident. He had just finished mowing his lawn and decided to go for a drive.”
If you have any information about the accident, call Cabarrus Area Crime Stoppers at 704-932-7463 or the Concord Police Department at 704-920-5000.
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information.
