A white C5 Corvette was hit from behind by a Jeep in Somers, Wisconsin earlier this month, sending at least three people to the hospital.
The Corvette was eastbound on Highway K and was trying to turn south into a driveway when it was struck in the rear by the eastbound Jeep.
The impact spun the C5 and damaged the left rear section of the vehicle, then caused the Jeep to roll over onto its side.
Witness JoAnn Montez found the occupants of the Corvette still inside, with the driver appearing to be uninjured but complaining of some pain.
The driver’s 4 ½-year-old granddaughter was secured in a child safety seat.
“I was just helping them to stay calm,” Montez said.
Fortunately, all injuries in the accident were considered minor, Sgt. Doug Bourdo of the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department said later.
Investigators believe alcohol with the Jeep driver may have played a role in the accident, and citations are pending, pending further investigation.
