[VIDEO] Corvette Driver Injured in Fiery Street Race Crash


A street race in Overland Park, KS did not end well for a Corvette driver who was sent to the hospital along with four others after a fiery crash at a busy intersection.

Although we are not exactly sure of the sequence of events that led to the crash, it does appear that a C5 Corvette Z06 was a racing a Nissan GTR on 119th Street near Rosehill Road. The Corvette hit a pickup truck which was carrying four teenagers. The impact caused the pick up truck to roll over, sending those four teens to the hospital as well.

Max Miller heard the cars revving their engines and after hearing the crash, rushed to scene to help, not even taking the time to get his shoes on when he ran to help the driver of a Chevrolet Corvette.

“The guy was stuck in there, both his legs broken up against the dash,” he said.

Another witness named Leslee Trotter said that when she got to the scene, the Corvette was on fire.

“I mean, you see accidents frequently, but never to that extent,” she said. “Especially right in your neighborhood.”

Police say they will recommend the harshest penalties possible to the Johnson County District Attorney’ Office as street racing has been a problem in the area.
