Pieces of a C7 Corvette Z06 lay scattered across the road in Miami-Dade County, Fla., after the driver crashed his $90,000 coupe into a bus stop Thursday morning.
It could have been much worse, though.
Only one of the three women at the bus stop when the Corvette crashed into it wound up being injured, and fortunately, it appears that she only suffered bruises to her leg but was carried to a hospital to be further examined.
The worst damage appeared to have occurred to the Z06, which suffered major damage to the front end after crashing into the glass wall of the bus stop, located in the area of Northeast 15th Avenue and Miami Gardens Drive. Authorities say it appears the Corvette did not strike the bench inside the bus stop.
The driver told a news reporter for Local 10 News that he was on his way to work when he swerved his Corvette to avoid hitting what he thought was an animal in the road. Florida Highway Patrol investigators believe speed and the slick street may have also contributed to the crash.
