[ACCIDENT] Street Racing Corvette Driver Killed in Texas Crash


The driver of a Corvette that burst into flames Wednesday night after an apparent drag racing accident in San Antonio, Texas lost his life the next morning.

Witnesses told authorities that a black Corvette and a silver Infiniti were drag racing in the 3900 block of Thousand Oaks Drive when an oncoming driver attempted a left turn in front of them.

The Corvette couldn’t stop in time and struck the turning vehicle, and the Infiniti then crashed into the Corvette, sending it careening out of control before the Chevy struck a power box and utility pole.

The Corvette driver was thrown from the car just before it caught fire, according to 18-year-old witness Sergio Herrera.

Herrera says he pulled the Corvette driver away from the car, then waited for paramedics to arrive. Unfortunately, Jesse Zerwas, 31, died at a local hospital the next morning.

Two other vehicles also suffered damage from wreck debris.

Herrera told News4 out of San Antonio that he lives in the area and wasn’t surprised to find out that racing was involved in the accident, noting “people race on Thousand Oaks – it happens all the time.”

Herrera says he would like to forget the aftermath of the tragic accident but told News4 that “I just know in my heart I did everything I possibly could to try to help and it hurts knowing that he didn’t make it.”

  1. Fuck him if he wasn’t such an asshole for street racing he wouldn’t be looking stupid laying on a stainless coroners table now! If I had a third eye I’d cry for him.

  2. You can be smart and still get into trouble with this car. Its not dump the clutch and go anymore. It will eat your lunch and more if you race on the street and don’t know this beast. A driver of a 16 Z96/Z07 I am and I am careful to know my limitations. Street racing is not an option although I am challenged at every stop light by some fool in a rice-er or other less powerful cars.

  3. STUPID PEOPLE AND FAST CARS!!! STREET RACING IS JUST A WHO HAS A BIGGER D____ BUT DO NOT HAVE THE B____ TO GO TO A REAL RACE TRACK TO GET THEIR A__ KICKED BY REAL DRIVERS!!!

  4. Teach your kids right, so they don’t make deadly mistakes! Often they kill someone other than themselves.

  5. My homie was at the scene you knowitalls. Poorly made Chevy EXPLODED right after impact. The guy was lucky to be thrown from this piece of shit. I always wanted a corvette but will never buy a Chevy due to this incident.

    Fact is that fast cars are gonna crash but it should be designed to not explode…
