Your car isn’t always safe from harm even when it’s parked in your driveway.
That’s the takeaway from this weird accident Sunday night involving a silver C6 Corvette coupe in a neighborhood in Brampton, a town west of Toronto, Canada.
Police say the Corvette driver apparently lost control of his car, which roared through a residential lawn, hit a tree, and wound up on top of a Toyota Yaris parked in the driveway.
The 42-year-old Corvette driver had to be taken to a hospital to be treated for serious injuries, though reports from Brampton Fire and Emergency Services say they apparently are not life-threatening.
No one else was injured. Fortunately, the owner of the Toyota wasn’t in the car at the time of the crash, which happened about 8 p.m. Sunday at Harold Street and McMurchy Avenue.
“We just heard a big sound in the house,” Payal Mehta, who lives at the home, told CTV Toronto. “We just came out and we saw the car – the Corvette – on our driveway, all up on my car.”
No word yet on the cause of the crash from police.
The Corvette suffered extensive damage to the front two-thirds of the car, with the doors apparently having to be removed during extrication of the victim. The hood and right fender are also missing in photos from the scene.
