Earlier this month, a wrecked Blade Silver C7 Corvette Stingray made headlines after a picture of the decapitated Coupe went viral. We are still unaware of what actually caused the accident, but we have learned since that the Stingray’s LT1 drive train has been sold and is now at a shop in Florida.
Corvette Accidents, Crashes and Wrecks
Nothing breaks our heart more than to see a Corvette that was involved in an accident.
Corvettes are known for their power.
This black 1974 Corvette is known now for its ability to knock out the power to nearly 700 customers after it collided with a utility pole over the weekend.
When Superstorm Sandy walloped the East Coast last October, the damage was widespread to homes, businesses, and boardwalks.
That damage also included lots of beautiful collector cars.
Fortunately, however, what can be destroyed can many times be restored to its previous glory.
A Thursday afternoon crash of a classic C2 Corvette into a tree left an unidentified man in serious condition in Lunenberg, Mass.
The man apparently veered off the road in a red 1960 Corvette, striking a tree on Lancaster Avenue.
The driver of this C5 Corvette Convertible is very lucky after surviving a crash off of Muholland Highway near Malibu, CA.
The Corvette went over the side of the road, and the driver was able to walk black up to the main highway afterwards.
Our friend in Texas who originally provided us the video and photos has now requested that they be removed and we have done so. We apologize to our readers.

SAVE THE STINGRAYS!
Last night we learned about a strange incident at the Texas State Fair where a participant at the Chevy Ride and Drive event crashed into two Corvette Stingrays with the back of 2014 Impala. We now have some more details from someone that was at the event and saw the crash first hand and told us that isn’t entirely accurate.

We’re debuting a new tag tonight called “SAVE THE STINGRAYS”. We think it’s only proper given the fact that learned tonight about another two or three C7 Corvettes that were taken out in a case of Bow-tie on Bow-tie violence in Texas.
According to Jalopnik, things got interesting at the Chevy Ride and Drive event on Wednesday afternoon at the Texas State Fair after an unidentified driver in the 2014 Impala hit two or three 2014 Corvette Stingrays, damaging at least two of the C7s as well as the Impala.
Here’s another 2014 Corvette Stingray that met its demise much too soon. Like the Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray accident we showed last week, details on this crash are so far non-existent. We can only surmise that based on the windshield, this Corvette was involved in a serious accident and may have been rolled. Let’s hope the driver is okay!
The mystery of what happened to Terrance Paul Beghin and his 1982 Corvette 27 years ago appears closer to a solution.
Charlotte County workers found a white Corvette in a canal near Rampard Boulevard and Navigator Road in the Deep Creek area of Punta Gorda, Fla., and it was pulled from the water Wednesday morning.
