As the track for Hurricane Leslie (now a Tropical Storm) takes it over Canada’s Newfoundland today and into the North Atlantic, we are getting updates on twitter from some of the damage that has occurred. Unfortunately, one C4 Corvette owner’s car was smashed after a large shed had taken flight and landed on his red sports car.

A red 2012 Corvette came to rest nose-first in a canal in Royal Palm Beach, Florida early Monday morning.
The two passengers in the car, which was rented from Hertz, were able to make their way out of the car and apparently suffered only minor injuries. Fortunately, a witness headed to work saw the accident and called 911 for help.
You don’t see too many Corvettes in New Zealand, no doubt.
You see even fewer coming out of the side of a boat.
But that’s what happened Monday when a 1984 Corvette smashed into a boat moored in the Awanui River.
It’s not often that you see a pickup truck on top of a Corvette, but that was the case last week in Northern Indiana.
A 54-year-old Ligonier, Indiana man in a red C5 Corvette was trying to pass a line of cars along State Route 9 in Noble County when he crashed into a pickup that was turning left onto County Road 850N.
Everyone dreads the thoughts of one day hitting a deer in his car.
Can you imagine if it happened in a Corvette Z06 during a race?

What took a 65-year-old Staunton, Missouri man a lifetime to collect was destroyed overnight Thursday in a fire that gutted his two garages containing three Corvettes and related memorabilia.
“This was my whole life,” an emotional John Hibbeler told stltoday.com reporter Kim Bell. “It took me 45 years to get to this position, and I lost it all in one night.”
He lost it all thanks to a small brush fire that got out of control, fire officials said.
When you think of iconic c1 Corvettes, mostly likely the image conjured in your head is that of the classic roadster painted red with white coves.
Now imagine that it’s your Corvette and by the way, it’s on fire!
The old “I hit the accelerator instead of the brake” trick resulted in an unusual sight in Albuquerque on Monday: the rear end of a Corvette sticking out the front window.
Seems a senior citizen in her white C4 Corvette pulled that stunt as she was driving into the parking lot of the Great Harvest Bread Company on Montgomery Boulevard and Juan Tabo Boulevard N.E. in the El Dorado Square Shopping Center.

The California Highway Patrol is asking for help from citizens who may know the identity of a C6 Corvette driver involved in a deadly hit-and-run accident early Sunday.
Authorities say witnesses saw a dark blue 2005 or 2006 Corvette with a removable hardtop strike a male pedestrian on the Highway 101 off-ramp for eastbound Highway 166 between Santa Maria and Nipomo, then speed off at high speed.
It could have been much worse, but let’s hope a 16-year-old’s joyride in his mom’s 1996 Corvette over the weekend was worth the heap of trouble he’s in now.
Seems the teenager took the sports car without his mom’s approval and wound up totaling the vehicle and ending up at the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
