A Thursday night crash in Utah involving four vehicles sent a C6 Corvette driver and his passenger to the hospital, but fortunately, their injuries apparently weren’t as severe as the damage to their car.

The accident, which happened about 10:28 p.m. at 4500 South and State Street in Murray, started when a white SUV was traveling south through the intersection and a brown pickup truck was heading east through the intersection.

“We’re not sure who ran a red light,” Murray Police Sgt. Alisha Richmond said at the scene, talking to a reporter with Gephardt Daily, “but it appears the white vehicle was going at a high rate of speed. The brown truck hit the white vehicle on the passenger side, which caused that vehicle to go northbound into oncoming traffic, and it hit a black Corvette head-on and then flipped over it.”

The black Corvette was stopped at a red light, and the impact pushed it into the bumper of a Utah Transit Authority SUV stopped directly behind it.

The white SUV landed on its roof, and its driver was ejected and had to be carried to the hospital in critical condition, Richmond told KSL.com.

All vehicles in the crash were totaled, with the exception of the UTA SUV, which was able to drive away, according to Richmond.

The driver’s side of the Corvette suffered major damage, with the hood, front fender, door, and roof panel missing in photos from the scene. You can see all the crash photos at www.GephardtDaily.com.

  1. Highly unlikely that an eastbound truck hitting an SUV travelling southbound at a high rate of speed would cause the SUV “to go northbound into oncoming traffic” (ie. cause a 180 degree change in the SUV’s direction of travel). The reporter probably meant to say that the collision with the truck deflected the southbound SUV into the oncoming northbound lanes where it collided with the Corvette.
