A C5 Corvette owner must have had a “what was I thinking” moment when she tried to cross a flooded wash after a heavy rain in Phoenix. The sad images of the Corvette stuck in water with one droopy headlight while a bystander looks on are pretty pathetic while the “sad trombone” music does nothing to help the situation.
After a pickup truck
scratches the rear offers a push out of the water, the driver is seen for a moment talking with bystander who still can’t believe what he saw.
So the next time you see a sign that says “DO NOT CROSS WHEN FLOODED”, instead of thinking “I can make it because I’m driving a Corvette”, perhaps take a moment and consider “Hmm, I guess so many people have gotten flooded here that they had to put up a sign.”
