The owner of this 2017 Corvette Grand Sport 2LT probably wishes his accident was just a bad April Fool’s joke.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
In fact, this week’s crash was the second incident since 2017 involving this Corvette and driver Jerome Irving Boyenga, 58, of Leonardtown, Md.
In February 2017, Boyenga was pulled over in the Corvette by the St. Mary’s County (Md.) Sheriff’s Office for going 89 in a 50 in Lexington Park, Md. Two months later he pleaded guilty to driving while impaired by alcohol and received probation that eventually expired Oct. 28, 2018.
Fast forward to April Fool’s Day 2019, and Boyenga and the same Corvette were in the news again after he ran it off the road and into the woods on Point Lookout Road and Willows Road in Park Hall, Md. about 10:30 p.m.
The Grand Sport suffered extensive damage and authorities at first thought Boyenga was trapped in the car. Actually, rescue workers found out he just didn’t want to get out of the Corvette. Who could blame him after seeing the damage to the car, though?
Fortunately, Boyenga suffered only minor injuries that required treatment at an area hospital.
St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office officials say speed and alcohol appear to have contributed to the crash.
