A 1986 Corvette wound up upside down after being struck by a 1999 Blazer Thursday morning, according to a Colorado State Patrol spokesman.
The accident happened in Hygiene, Colo., at 75th Street and Colorado 66 when the driver of the westbound Blazer turned into the path of the oncoming Corvette.
The impact caused the Corvette to roll over into a ditch, but fortunately the driver survived the crash, being transported to Longmont United Hospital with moderate injuries.
The driver of the Blazer suffered minor injuries and was also taken to the same hospital. He was cited for careless driving resulting in injury.
Ironically, it was at least the third rollover crash that police in the Hygiene area have responded to during the previous three days.
By the way, the Hygiene name stems from a time when the town had a sanitarium to work with tuberculosis patients, according to Wikipedia.
