Speed, Corvettes, and a large tree don’t make for a good outcome.
That was the case on Saturday when a Velocity Yellow C7 Corvette Z06 Coupe slammed into a tree on Huron River Drive just west of Ann Arbor, Mich., trapping the two occupants inside the vehicle.
Scio Township Fire Department officials said speed may have led to the crash, but the investigation continues. Also at the scene were Ann Arbor Fire, Huron Valley Ambulance and the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office.
Rescue crews extricated the two passengers from the Corvette, which suffered extensive damage to the front end and passenger side, based on photos from the scene. Various pieces of the Stingray were scattered around the scene.
No word on the condition of the occupants, who had to be transported to the University of Michigan hospital by ambulance, officials said. The accident happened at 11:30 a.m. on Huron River Drive just east of Wagner Road in Scio Township.
A nearby resident, Rachel Wampler, said she was outside gardening at her home on Parkridge Drive when she heard a car accelerating around the curve.
“I came down to the top of the ridge and we looked over and there was the car crunched on the tree,” Wampler said.
