Well, that didn’t last long.
The owner of this black C4 Corvette told authorities he had just bought the car this week. Now, the rear end is damaged, the car is impounded, and he’s in jail.
It all started when he and the driver of a fourth-generation Camaro happened upon each other and decided to “race for fun” on Cleveland Road in Johnston County in Smithfield, North Carolina.
Unfortunately for them, during the race, they passed a State Highway Patrol trooper who promptly gave chase and tried to stop the speeding drivers. The pursuit, which reached speeds of 130 mph, came to an end when the Camaro broke down and the Corvette crashed after running through the intersection of N.C. Highway 210 and Cleveland Road, hitting a ditch and crashing into a guardrail.
No injuries were reported, and the Corvette suffered minor damage to the rear fender.
Both vehicles were impounded by authorities under North Carolina’s “Run and You’re Done” law passed in 2011. The law allows police to impound the vehicle of a defendant convicted of felony speeding to elude, and the vehicle can even be auctioned off with proceeds given to North Carolina school systems.
The two drivers, meanwhile, were carried to Johnston County Jail, where charges are pending.
