Corvette Accidents, Crashes and Wrecks
Nothing breaks our heart more than to see a Corvette that was involved in an accident.
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.
A medical helicopter was used to transport a West Milford, New Jersey Corvette driver to the hospital after he crashed his yellow 2003 coupe into a tree last Thursday morning.
Anthony Venturella, 57, was believed to be on his way to work at 5:42 a.m. when the one-car crash occurred on Route 23 South near the Kinnelon border.
After a major thunderstorm swept through Toronto on Monday afternoon and dumped the equivalent of one month’s worth of rain in four hours, reports of flash floods starting pouring in. We caught a tweet from @meltait who is a/the multimedia editor/video producer for the Winnipeg Free Press. She shared a pic of this yellow Corvette submerged under an overpass.
The Michigan Mile was held over the weekend on an airport runway in Battle Creek. One of the participants was driving this Silver Corvette ZR1 and according to Jalopnik, after make a couple “ludicrously fast runs”, the driver did a burnout and apparently crashed into another vehicle.
Let’s hope that the driver of this C6 Corvette makes a full recovery after a serious accident Monday morning in Missouri.
Police are still investigating why the 63-year-old driver, of Oran, Mo., rammed into the back of a tractor-trailer at a traffic light on South Kingshighway near the Southern Expressway in Cape Girardeau, Mo., a police spokesman said.
