Seeing a late 1970s Chevrolet Caprice in the United States is usually a pretty rare sight but in Germany? We’d venture to guess that’s a really rare sight.
Somehow, the some 40-year-old Chevrolet Caprice ended up calling Germany home, but was involved in a one-car wreck in the country a few weeks ago. According to local Osthessen News, the Caprice was driven by a 28-year-old with a 24-year-old riding in the passenger seat. Police said the driver was moving at high speeds when he lost control of the Caprice during a fishtail and hurled the vehicle into a ditch.
Police also said the two were intoxicated with open containers in the vehicle, while some were thrown from the car following the impact. Both the driver and passenger are said to be “seriously injured” after not wearing seatbelts.
The story of a classic Caprice came to an end that night, as the vehicle was sent off to be junked. And we’re sure the two responsible for the wreck won’t be behind the wheel for quite some time.
