Check out this white late-C3 Corvette that was badly damaged in an early morning wreck Wednesday in Ironton, Ohio.

The front of the Corvette was in ruins after the crash, with the hood and right fender missing and the right front tire barely hanging on. The windshield was smashed on the passenger side, and the car appeared to have suffered major damage to the rear section, too.

The driver of the Corvette, Mike Statton, had to be transported to a hospital after suffering injuries when his westbound car crossed the median and collided with a box truck going east on U.S. 52 at mile marker 6.

Fortunately, his injuries didn’t seem serious, officials said.

“He was talking,” Ironton Fire Department Capt. Craig Thomas said of Statton. “He just had a couple of cuts on his head. He was coherent and talking. We didn’t have to cut him out of the vehicle.”

Steven Thompson, who was driving the box truck, escaped with no injuries.

Responding to the call and on the scene until 10:26 a.m. were the Ironton Fire Department, Lawrence County EMS, Ironton Police Department, Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, and Ohio State Highway Patrol.

  1. Would be interesting to know what brand of vehicle has the highest rate of collisions due to the driver losing control, per miles driven. I would be inclined to think that Corvette would be at or near the top of that list.
