It was bad news for both the driver and the passenger in a yellow Corvette that crashed in east Tulsa, Oklahoma early Wednesday morning.
The driver suffered a broken leg and had to be taken to the hospital, but the passenger (who actually owned the Corvette) had it even worse – he was arrested on outstanding warrants.
Then there’s the matter of having to deal with more than a little damage suffered by the C5 coupe, which appears in these photos posted to the Channel 6 TV news website, to have lost the skin off its entire passenger side. The back wheel is hanging loose, too.
Police say before the crash, an officer had spotted the Corvette doing more than 100 mph on Highway 169. At that speed, it didn’t take long for him to lose sight of it, but it also didn’t take long for police to relocate it after receiving a call about a crashed Corvette just minutes later.
My wife likes to say nothing good happens after midnight. In this case, her words ring true. This accident happened around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday on Pine east of 129th East Avenue. Police say the Corvette crashed through a fence and hit several trees before stopping.
The names of the driver and passenger have not been released. Police said they are not sure if alcohol contributed to the crash.
