There’s an old saying: rules are meant to be broken. But, in some cases, rules stand as a firm reminder to obey, or face consequences. Sometimes it could even end in loss of life.
It stands as truth then, unless you’re Randy Pobst, you probably shouldn’t be throwing a 1999 C5 Corvette around an S-bend well over the 35 mph posted speed limit. Especially if your license is merely months old.
Unfortunately, that’s what two 16 year olds from St. George Utah did, and totaled out the 1999 C5 Corvette in the process. Police say the 1999 Corvette was traveling way past the 35 mph posted speed limit when the 16 year old driver lost control, hit a curb and continued up an embankment. The Corvette nearly rolled over, but caught its weight after landing on the passenger side, and remained upright.
The two teenagers fled the scene, but were found by local police later that day and cooperated with the investigation fully, according to St. George News. Both teens walked away with minor injuries, fortunately.
