A silver C5 Corvette was one of three vehicles involved in a Texas crash that injured four people Thursday night in San Angelo.

In the process, he hit a Hyundai headed southbound on Bryant, with the impact causing the Corvette to then strike a Ford Escape making a right turn onto Bryant from Knickerbocker.

[VIDEO] RallyCross in a C5 Corvette Z06


Remember that C5 Corvette Z06 that did a burnout so awesome that the brakes caught on fire? We figured Matt Einarsson was the owner of the car after seeing a couple more videos featuring the same C5 Z06s in his youtube timeline.

Matt reached out to us on our facebook page and gave us a heads up on another video featuring his Corvette Z06 in an SCCA sanctioned RallyCross – which is pretty much an autocross held on dirt. Matt shows no fear in driving his Z06 off-road and the car is more than capable in handling the terrain.

If you’re going to be involved in a sideshow, you better be prepared to lose your car.

A sideshow, in case you haven’t heard, is an informal and illegal demonstration of automotive stunts often held in vacant lots and public intersections, most commonly doughnuts.
