We’re not exactly sure what chain of events that went into motion to cause this black C3 Corvette to end up on its top. We do know that the accident sent two men to the hospital after this serious crash in Brevard County Florida. The accident caused the southbound lanes of US-1 to be shut down in Malabar, Florida so emergency crews could clean up the mess.
Corvette Accidents, Crashes and Wrecks
Nothing breaks our heart more than to see a Corvette that was involved in an accident.
We all know Corvettes are named after a “speedy ship” and we also know they make pretty lousy boats. Just ask Mark Weiss who watched helplessly Thursday evening as his classic 1962 Corvette rolled down an embankment and submerged in Mead Pond in New Canaan, CT.
A woman suspected of driving her Corvette under the influence caused a major accident in Lodi, California over the weekend. In the early morning hours of July 17, the unidentified woman was driving a 2011 Velocity Yellow Corvette Grand Sport Convertible at over 90 miles per hour when she broadsided a 1994 Pontiac Bonneville at the intersection of Lower Sacramento Road and Kettleman Lane/Highway 12.
The Yellow and Black Corvette factory racers were only 20 minutes into the 2 hour 45 minute shootout at the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock when contact between an LMPC prototype and one of the Extreme Speed Ferraris caused a chain reaction which collected the #4 and #3 Corvettes and the #55 BMW. Both Corvettes were damaged and by the time repairs were completed, both cars were out of contention and 15-20 laps off the leader.
At first glance you might think the Corvette’s driver was doing something stupid and the end result was this damaged car. Our Corvette accidents category is filled with similar tales. That wasn’t the case here as this C4 Corvette was just tending to his own business when he became tangled up in three car incident on Long Island.
We’re not sure what sparked the fire that caused this torch red C5 Z06 to burn to the ground, and the original poster didn’t say, but judging by the way the flames are dancing along the ground, it definitely looks fuel related. A lot of money went into this car for the opportunity to play in the 1000 hp club and in just a few minutes it was all gone.
KMBC in Kansas City had this report about a Corvette that crashed into a house. The Corvette’s driver apparently was running from a routine police stop. After turning onto a small back road off Highway 150, the driver lost control and hit a tree which launched the Corvette airborne. Police found the wrecked Corvette on the front porch of a home.
This “head-turning” traffic accident in El Cajon, California caught our attention as the picture shows the rear-ending of Dodge Neon by an Arctic White C6 Corvette with the Neon actually coming to rest on the hood of America’s favorite sports car. No one was injured in the accident which was allegedly caused by the Corvette driver talking on a cell phone.
Corvette owners have many options when it comes to insuring their Collector vehicle. We believe that knowledge is power when it comese to making an informed decision which is why we spoke to the NCM Insurance Agency’s Adam Boca about the services offered from the Corvette Museum’s in-house insurance agency and how their programs are a win-win for both members and the Museum.
I’m not gonna lie. This video is a hard one to watch. The owner of C5 Corvette gets turned around and bangs into a wall somewhere on Chicago’s Dan Ryan Expressway. He may have thought his bad luck would end there, but he’s about to find out first hand the damage that can be done to a Corvette by a tow truck operator who’s primary mission is to clear the road, not the care and safety of the C5 Corvette in his possession.
