This Corvette driver apparently didn’t learn two major rules of safe driving: don’t talk on your phone and always watch for 18-wheelers making wide left turns.
The result of ignoring those rules was that this black C6 convertible wound up with the right front fender underneath the trailer of the semi-truck Wednesday afternoon in Kelowna, British Columbia in Canada.
“As a result of the trailer making a left-hand turn, it came into contact with the Corvette that was close to the intersection,” Kelowna Royal Canadian Mounted Police Cpl. Amadeo Vecchio said.
Check out this video from the scene that shows the Corvette stopped slightly under the trailer, as well as the slight scrape on the passenger front fender. You can also watch surveillance video that shows the accident as it happened:
Authorities say the Corvette was traveling west in the left-hand lane beside the tractor-trailer before the crash occurred about 1:50 p.m. at the corner of Pandosy Street and Lawrence Avenue. Eyewitnesses told police the Corvette driver was on his phone at the time.
Both drivers told authorities they were not injured in the crash.
