Police in Canada have arrested a 38-year-old man after he flipped his black C7 Corvette, then left the scene of the accident in the Ontario, Canada town of Brampton.
Authorities were called to the scene of the accident around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, discovering the Corvette upside down in a grassy area in the area of Chinguacousy and Mayfield roads.
At first, Peel Regional Police weren’t sure if the driver had been thrown from the vehicle, which appears to be a convertible based on photos from the scene, or if he had fled before emergency crews arrived.
They eventually found the driver more than two kilometers from the crash and have charged him with dangerous driving and failing to remain at the scene of a collision.
