Another Corvette has met an early demise after a 21-year-old driver lost control of his car, ran off the road and crashed into a tree.
MLive reports the driver was going too fast and slammed into a massive tree in a tight corner of the road in Ann Arbor, Michigan. A 17-year-old passenger was also onboard. Both sustained non-life-threatening injuries but emergency responders had to free both from the Corvette after being pinned inside.
Police have ruled out drug and alcohol influence and stated high speeds were the cause of the crash. From the crash photos, it looks to be a C7 Corvette Z06, judging from the taillights. The carnage is pretty incredible and its miraculous both the driver and passenger didn’t suffer from more serious injuries.
At any rate, 650 horsepower is a lot to handle; too much power for a 21-year-old, in this case.
