This C5 Corvette convertible caught fire after crashing into an SUV in Des Moines, Washington about 2 p.m. Saturday.
Fortunately, the blaze appears to have been extinguished before much damage was done to the Corvette.
Reports from the scene, in the 21000 block of Des Moines Memorial Drive, don’t indicate the fate of the Corvette driver, though one person was trapped in the other vehicle, a Toyota, and two injured victims had to be carried to the hospital.
Photos of the aftermath of the wreck show a wet roadway that could have played a role in the crash, though the Des Moines Police Department is still investigating the cause.
The Corvette suffered extensive damage to the front, especially on the driver’s side, and bits and pieces of the sports car were scattered on the roadway.
Des Moines Memorial Drive had to be closed while the crash was investigated and cleaned up.
