Here’s a piece of advice I learned a long time ago about selling Corvettes which goes something like this, “The second you decide to sell your Corvette is the moment that you start treating it as someone else’s.”
That’s a polite way of saying don’t do something stupid and causing the sale not to go through.
Unfortunately, a North Carolina man is learning that lesson the hard way after crashing his 2020 Corvette Stingray outside of Greenville, N.C.
Spencer Everette of Greenville, N.C. was selling his Corvette Stingray on Tuesday and decided to take it out for a “last hurrah.”
He told WITN Channel 7 that he pulled onto Highway 11 at Staton Mill Road and “gunned it” and the Corvette got away from him and he crashed into a ditch where it flipped. Emergency rescue crews were dispatched on Monday around 2:00 PM to find the car on its side.
Luckily, Everette was uninjured in the crash and a tow truck was dispatched to flip the vehicle back on its four wheels.
North Carolina’s Highway Patrol investigated the accident and charged Everette with reckless driving.
A Video posted to WINT’s Facebook page shows the painful moment the Corvette was flipped over:
