The driver of this white C5 Corvette coupe had to be cut out of his car after wrapping it around a utility pole in a small town in New Zealand on Friday night.

Fortunately, news reports say the man was in stable condition with serious injuries at Wellington Regional Hospital on Saturday.

A photo from the scene shows the Corvette hanging somewhat precariously on the edge of the road, with waves in Sunshine Bay crashing just a few feet below.

A witness to the crash traveling in the opposite direction said the Corvette suddenly skidded out and smashed into the pole on its right side. Since most cars are right-hand drive in New Zealand, Caroline Spencer thought the impact had concluded on the driver’s side. Actually, the Corvette was left-hand drive, meaning that it was the passenger side that actually made contact with the pole.

Firefighters responded to the crash about 7:51 p.m. on Marine Drive in Sunshine Bay, Eastbourne, a suburb of Lower Hutt city in the southern North Island of New Zealand with a population of 4,665 people in the 2013 New Zealand Census.
