At this rather large gathering of car enthusiasts in Turkey, we see a black C6 Corvette doing some impressive burnouts and donuts. As the Corvette wraps up its little show for the crowd, two other cars get in the act including an unknown maroon sedan with the obligatory passenger with a handycam hanging out the window. What happens next can only be described with a face palm to the forehead.
An Arizona couple will no doubt remember Easter 2012 for a long time.
They woke up Sunday morning to the sounds of their doorbell being rung repeatedly to warn them of a fire at their San Tan Valley home.
You may have heard about and seen the Top Gear chopper that was captured as it lost control and crashed into the dirt on a timely video shot by a man in Coolidge, Ariz.
What you may not have seen is additional footage that has just surfaced on YouTube that actually shows the speeding Corvette being filmed by the helicopter for a stunt on the popular TV show, then gives an in-copter view of what the crash looked like to the two pilots and shows onlookers rushing to check on the pair.
I wouldn’t technically call this a fail as fail usually denotes that the person behind the wheel of the car is somehow at fault for doing something stupid. So having said that, we came across an instagram tweet late this afternoon from @chrisgoulet that said the following:

We retweeted the photo and asked for details. @ChrisGoulet replied:
“Construction + double-lane left-hand turn = side-swiped and run off the road.”

It was a busy Friday morning for 31-year old Joseph Ciambriello according the police in Lindenhurst, New York.
The man was first accused of creeping around an elementary school in the early morning hours. When school officials confronted Ciambriello, he told them he was a member of the CIA and then he fled in his black C6 Corvette. The school got his license plate and called in the security threat to police, who caught up with Ciambriello a short time later.
While pulling up to the Goldenrod, Florida post office on Monday, 72 year old Ruth Lawyer tried to brake but mistakenly hit the gas pedal which plunged her 1-month-old 2012 Velocity yellow Corvette coupe into the front of the facility.
The 88-year old driver of this “Little Red Corvette” lost control on a rain-soaked road in Green Valley, Arizona last week. The Corvette bounced off the median, spun around and jumped the curb before it came to rest in a KFC parking lot, hitting a light pole which fell over on a van.
A Friday afternoon crash sent the driver of this 1987 Corvette to the hospital. The man was driving near Tiverton, RH when his Corvette left the road and went into a swampy area, rolled on its roof and trapped the driver under it.
