[ACCIDENT] Corvette Crash Shuts Down I-95 in South Florida

A red C4 Corvette coupe now looks like a convertible after crashing into a truck Tuesday afternoon in Boca Raton, Fla.

The driver of the Corvette, Wordie Whidden, told a reporter for the Sun Sentinel that he was taking a woman to the airport when his car hydroplaned, spun out of control, and became pinned underneath a truck on I-95, causing the southbound lanes of the interstate off Yamato Road to close for an hour.

The passenger in the Corvette was flown by a Trauma Hawk helicopter to a hospital, where she was listed in serious condition, according to Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Wysocky.

The interstate reopened around 1 p.m. Tuesday, police said.
