The passenger of a Sebring Orange Metallic 2019 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible was sent to the hospital while its driver was charged with driving under the influence following a multi-vehicle crash in Redding California on Thursday.
Authorities say the 58-year-old-driver of the C7 Grand Sport was northbound on Churn Creek Road when he crossed the double lines and hit a Toyota pickup. The pickup then struck a Ford F-150 while the Corvette took out a light pole before jumping the curb and crashing into the entrance sign for the Sportsman’s Warehouse.
ActionNewsNow.com reports that even though the airbags did deploy in the Corvette, the 53-year-old passenger complained of pain and was taken to an area hospital after the crash.
The driver was booked for DUI at the Shasta County Jail. The accident is still under investigation by the Redding Police Department’s traffic unit.
