[ACCIDENT] Arctic White Corvette Z06 Crash Lands on West Virginia Front Porch


Pictures of a huge crash are being shared on various Corvette facebook groups got our attention tonight! The pics show an Arctic White Corvette Z06 that went off-road and landed (or came to a rest) sideways on the front porch of a home in West Virginia.

The good news is that the driver was able to crawl out of the crashed Corvette Z06 and was talking on the phone when emergency workers arrived.

The accident happened somewhere in the vicinity of Enterprise or Shinnston West Virgina based on the comments. The pics were posted on Facebook on Sunday by Thomas Minnear who posted the photos along with the caption that reads “I’d say his angel was riding shotgun !!”

Yes, the C7 Corvette does do a great job in protecting its occupants, but let’s not kid ourselves. Speed kills, and the driver was lucky as most of the damage to the car is on the passenger side, including the door being ripped off and the passenger seat lying outside the car. Had this driver had a passenger with him, the crash would have most likely resulted in a fatality.

Additional comments in the post reveal those close to the driver who said the Corvette Z06 cost $117,000. From the pics, we see it was a Z06 with the Z07 Performance package.

Many commentators are also pointing to the summer-only Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that do appear to have seen better days.

Check out these photos and remember to not exceed the limits of the car or the road the next time you’re out having fun driving your Corvette!

  1. Them tires still got a lot of life!! You should be able to afford the maintenance on whatever it is you buy, or just don’t buy it.

  2. I hate seeing a beautiful machine like that get destroyed! Especially by an irresponsible driver who lacks any kind of skills behind the wheel.

  3. …..i wonder how many drivers of a supercar ( i talking starting at 350hp) could handle a 250 hp c4…..on the circuit…..al 250 ponie’s…..probbeble one hondred milion….but in real live???…(pardon my bad englisch)

  4. Serious consideration should be given to requiring a higher class of driver’s license and training before before being allowed to drive a high horsepower vehicle on public roads!

  5. i think the tires tell the story more than anything else
    But i agree if you spend 120K on a car spend a thousand to replace bald tires DUMB
