Let’s hope the occupants of this Torch Red mid-engine Corvette Stingray are OK after a one-vehicle crash Friday night in St. Joseph, Missouri.
St. Joseph Police say the driver and passenger had to be extricated from the car by firefighters after the 9:15 crash in the 1700 block of South Belt Highway.
While the new C8 Corvette is a magnificent machine, like any other car, it can still be dangerous. Police say the Corvette was traveling at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control and crashed into a pole and fence.
The car seems to be pretty much a total loss from the passenger compartment forward. In photos from the scene, the hood and fenders are missing, and the driver’s door is lying on the ground nearby after the extrication process. Maybe some of the drivetrain can be salvaged.
As for the occupants, they were transported to Mosaic Life Care with the severity of their injuries unknown, according to a story in the St. Joseph News-Press.
