Car shows are typically a great place to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of some sweet rides among like-minded enthusiasts. Unfortunately, all it takes is one idiot with a lead foot to ruin it for everyone, as was the case for the driver behind the wheel of the C6 Corvette seen in the following video.
Per a report from local ABC news affiliate WFAA, the incident occurred last Saturday in Trophy Club, Texas, a suburb of Dallas-Fort Worth, around 10:30 a.m. local time. As we can see in the video, a crowd of people had lined up alongside the Highway 114 service road to watch as vehicles exited a local Cars and Coffee event. The conditions look clear and sunny, although the jackets and hoodies in the crowd indicate that temperatures are likely a bit chilly.
As the crowd videos the cars exiting, we see a C6 Corvette pull out onto the road, with the driver nailing the throttle between some cones. As soon as the driver hits the throttle, the rear end of the sports car kicks out, sending it sideways and aiming it directly at the adjacent crowd.
The crowd reacts by moving away from the curb, but it’s too late. The C6 Corvette hops over the curb and plows into the crowd, visibly running over several of the spectators. Some folks rush to help those hit by the car, with one of the victims unconscious on the ground next to the Corvette’s fender.
According to the WFAA report, three teenagers suffered injuries as a result of the crash. Their conditions were not reported, although witnesses say that one of the victims hit her head on the windshield, while another injured their leg. Two of the victims were loaded onto stretchers by medics.
The C6 Corvette was subsequently impounded, although no charges have been reported.
