Corvette ZHZ Watch: Utah Man Puts Hertz Rent-A-Vette into Ditch

The list of Corvette ZHZ Coupes buying the farm added another to the list last night. This Corvette ZHZ’s driver came across this ditch last night and it’s fairly apparent that the ditch won this battle. According to Jalopnik, a witness saw the headlights turn in and then a few seconds later there was a loud grinding, crunching sound! Ditch 1, Corvette 0!

By our count, this is the 5th Corvette ZHZ to have suffered significant damage although we’re not sure if this qualifies as a total loss. For you fans of Corvettes ZHZs, let’s recap:

Take Out! Hertz Corvette ZHZ Wrecks Dallas Restaurant
This is the wreck that started the watch. The driver lost control and ended up in a patio dining area of a popular Dallas, Texas restaurant.

Another Hertz Corvette ZHZ Bites The Dust
The details of this Corvette’s demise are unknown, but following this accident, the Corvette was removed from the Hertz fleet and was sold on a salvage title as the engine block needed to be replaced.

[VIDEO] Hertz Corvette ZHZ Slams Into 8 Cars in Philadelphia
Not only was this Corvette a total loss, but the speeding ZHZ took out 8 other vehicles before coming to rest on a Philadelphia sidewalk.

[PIC] Corvette ZHZ Totally Totaled
Another Corvette ZHZ totaled and we judge this to be the worst accident of the bunch. We have no details as to how this Corvette met its demise, but I can assure that no TV repair men with an awesome set of tools will be fixing that one up anytime soon.

So, this new Corvette accident reduces the number of the original 500 Corvette ZHZs to just 495. If there is one piece of advice to learned from these accidents, it’s this: Buy the insurance! You never know what will happen while hooning it up in a 430 hp sports car that’s not yours!
