While wrecking a Corvette seems like a purely American past-time, occasionally we come across a foreign news report of a crashed Corvettes like this red 2008 Convertible we spotted on a Ukrainian website. Like many of the crashes we document here, this one appears to be caused by too much throttle and not enough brakes.

Not everyone loves Corvettes as much as we do, apparently.
Just ask the owners of this 2000 Corvette convertible.
They’ve had to call Fort Smith, Ark., police twice in the past two weeks, the first time when they discovered bullet holes in their Corvette as well as a truck in the driveway.

A 1986 Corvette wound up upside down after being struck by a 1999 Blazer Thursday morning, according to a Colorado State Patrol spokesman.
The accident happened in Hygiene, Colo., at 75th Street and Colorado 66 when the driver of the westbound Blazer turned into the path of the oncoming Corvette.
Driving a real-wheel drive 650 hp super car in crappy weather can be done if you follow the rules and play it safe. Unfortunately for this brand new Corvette Z06 with less than 100 miles on the odometer, the owner learned those rules the hard way and now the car sits at the dealer waiting for repairs.
A new 2015 Corvette Z06 was destroyed and its driver was pronounced dead at the scene following a fatal accident in Arkansas over the weekend.
Police say the car was traveling at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control. The Z06 went off the road and hit some trees, ejecting both the driver and the passenger.
A 2011 dark red Corvette was torn to pieces after the driver lost control and slammed into a wall in East El Paso, Texas on Sunday night.
Police said the man hit the rock wall surrounding the Cielo Vista Apartments after losing control as he headed north on Airway Boulevard near the Edgemere intersection.
Police never know what they’ll find at a crime scene.
Just witness this white 1996 Corvette that’s been impaled by fence posts that crashed through the back bumper, shattered the back glass, with one winding up going into the back of the passenger seat.
That’s what Edgartown police, fire, and medical responders found around 11 a.m. last Sunday when they reached the site of a car crash at Katama airfield off Herring Creek Drive.
Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to work late.
That’s what Linda Becker says she was doing around 2 a.m. Saturday at her Novato, California business on Entrada Drive called Dollhouses, Trains and More.
“I heard this loud…,” she told ABC7 News reporter Elissa Harrington. “The building just shook and I thought it was an earthquake.”
