[VIDEO] Watch this Corvette Z06 Crash into a Tree


I just don’t know what to say about today’s featured video from CorvetteVideos.TV.

Putting the hammer down on public roads can be a scary thing when the nail is a 650-horsepower Corvette Z06. This wide open throttle run starts off okay with the Corvette’s beefy Michelins keeping the car the straight and true. But the second she starts to wiggle, it all goes downhill from there. Or should I say into the trees?

It’s never nice to see a C7 Corvette Stingray involved in an accident, but this time at least it wasn’t a speeding Corvette at fault.

The Torch Red Corvette with Adrenaline Red interior and black wheels suffered extensive damage to the passenger side after the wreck Sunday afternoon in Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada.

It’ll be a sad Mother’s Day for one California family after a 40-year-old mom and her 14-month-old daughter were mowed down and killed last Saturday, May 2, by the allegedly drunk driver of a Corvette.

Police say Brian Jones, 35, of Livermore has been arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence causing injury.

The best news is that no one was injured Sunday when a man crashed a stolen red C7 convertible after leading police on a chase that reached speeds of 130 mph.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the Corvette Stingray, which suffered major front end damage after catching fire following the crash.

The three-county crime spree actually started with the suspect behind the wheel of a truck in Kendall County, Texas, but authorities say the man ditched that vehicle and stole the Stingray at gunpoint and started a house fire.

A man stopped on the side of I-71 North near Deerfield Township, Ohio is fighting for his life after he and his pickup truck were struck by a white 2015 Corvette Stingray on Friday morning.

Troopers said that Shawn Steinke, 47, of Lebanon, Ohio was checking on the load in his GMC Sierra on the berm of the interstate when the Corvette driver – 49-year-old Kevin Pong of South Lebanon, Ohio – lost control of his vehicle and struck the truck and Steinke, tossing him into the road where he was run over.

Corvette Stingray Gets Sideways at the Track

Maybe this driver should have stuck with the fancy technology that Chevrolet has built into the seventh-generation Corvette.

Instead, he turned the traction control off and over corrected as he was drifting around a corner heading into a straightaway.

The Stingray started doing a zig-zag dance, slid sideways into barriers, and wound up on its passenger side, no doubt inflicting thousands of dollars in damage.

Here’s a sight most Corvette enthusiasts don’t like to see.

This is the first time we’ve seen a 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible out in public wearing the new Daytona Orange Sunrise. Unfortunately, the 650-hp super car made somewhat of a spectacle of itself by losing control on wet roads and taking out another vehicle on its way to a ditch on I-94 in Jackson, Michigan over the weekend.
