A dramatic Christmas Day crash in Brazil between an out-of-control Chevy Chevette and a Chevy Camaro Convertible was captured on a local pizzeria’s security cameras and is now being circulated online.
According to the original uploader of this rather ridiculous clip, which was filmed in Ribeirão das Neves in Brazil’s Minas Gerais state, the driver of the brown Chevy Chevette lost consciousness while they were behind the wheel, causing their foot to depress the gas. The out-of-control vehicle went on to hit five cars before continuing down the street, flying off an embankment and crashing down onto the roof of a red fifth-generation Chevy Camaro Convertible that was travelling on a perpendicular street.
This accident could have very easily been fatal for the Camaro Convertible driver – especially as an impact like this is essentially the worst-case scenario for a soft-top convertible car. Thankfully the driver was only taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, however being hospitalized with serious injuries and having your Chevy Camaro Convertible totalled is not how anyone wants their Christmas Day to end. We wish them a speedy recovery.
The Chevy Chevette driver admitted to the local police he had just previously drunk “two shots of cognac,” before getting behind the wheel that day. We imagine he had quite a bit more than two shots, seeing as he suddenly passed out while he was behind the wheel, but we’re sure the police were able to determine just how drunk he was with a breathalyzer test. The driver of the Chevette was also taken to the hospital, the video description indicates.
