This classic Corvette was a total loss and its driver was badly burned after a two-vehicle accident in Tempe, AZ this Monday.

Police said the Corvette was rear ended by a pickup truck and the impact spun the sports car out into the intersection where it caught fire. The driver of the Corvette was on fire after exiting his car and he suffered second degree burns.
