A C5 Corvette convertible driver is in better shape than his car after an accident Friday on Winters Freeway in Abilene, Texas.
The driver suffered only minor injuries and had to be taken to an Abilene hospital after losing control of his Corvette and slamming into a concrete median, causing the car to burst into flames.
A Twitter message from the Abilene Police Department urged motorists to avoid the area, as motorists had to merge to one lane while the mess was being cleaned up.
Police said the crash happened as the Corvette driver was entering the southbound lanes of Winters Freeway from Clack Street around 11 a.m.
In a photo on the KTXS website, the front of the C5 looks pretty rough from the impact and the fire.
