The driver of an Arctic White C7 Corvette coupe escaped serious injury Monday morning after a double whammy where the car first struck a light pole, then a palm tree in the east Las Vegas Valley.
By the time the dust had cleared, his seventh-generation Stingray had suffered serious damage to the front end, with the hood crumpled and the front bumper ripped off and lying on the other side of the palm tree, based on photos at the Las Vegas Review-Journal website.
The light pole was also resting on top of the car from front to back.
Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon said the driver apparently lost control of the Corvette and slid across the northbound lanes before hitting the pole and palm tree about 3:40 a.m. Monday.
Debris littered northbound lanes of South Sloan Lane near Autumn Harvest Avenue after the crash.
Lt. Gordon said it was unknown whether the driver was impaired, but officers planned to go to the hospital to follow up and find out.
