A string of tornadoes tracked across the states of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota on Friday. The twister that ripped through Moville, Iowa early Friday evening was reported to be at least a mile wide. This picture from a storm chaser named Jeff Piotrowski shows an early C1 Corvette that was picked up and thrown a quarter mile away from its home.
Corvette Accidents, Crashes and Wrecks
Nothing breaks our heart more than to see a Corvette that was involved in an accident.
Last week was definitely a bad time to be a building in Buffalo, N.Y.
A customized silver C5 Corvette became the third vehicle in less than a week to crash into a structure in that city.
An accident involving a county government leader made some news earlier this month in Arizona.
Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox’s red C5 Corvette convertible (with light oak top) is smiling a little sideways these days – with the front bumper knocked loose and hanging on by only one side and the passenger’s side of the hood pointing toward the sky now.
No one ever likes to be in a crash, but the accident involving a 2014 Corvette Stingray and another car last week could turn out to be a blessing in disguise.
There’s nothing like a real world test to find out how safe a car is going to be, and the Stingray’s T-bone hit in the passenger door by a Lincoln Town Car is offering GM’s safety engineers a good look at how their latest creation held up.
A picture of a Cyber Gray 2014 Corvette Stingray involved in an accident has turned up on the Corvette Forum, but details of the crash are sketchy. From the pictures, it appears that a Lincoln Town Car t-boned the Corvette Stingray on the passenger side, causing damage to both cars.
Storms and low-riding Corvettes don’t always mix.
Just ask the driver of this C5 Corvette, who talked to a reporter from WREG-TV in Memphis, Tennessee last week about his misadventures following a major storm that swept through the area.
You’d like to think that your Corvette and motorcycle are safe when they’re parked in your own driveway and garage, wouldn’t you?
But not always.
A black on black C4 convertible and a motorcycle unwittingly became the victims of a four-vehicle pileup in Moscow, Idaho last week.
A thunderstorm hit the Phoenix, AZ area Sunday morning and dropped up to two inches of rain, causing the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood alert. Unfortunately, that warning came too late for one driver who became a hapless passenger after his silver C6 Corvette was swept off the road and down a wash for more than 100 yards by raging flood waters.
