Typically, when we hear of a rollover accident, we usually think of a large vehicle wreaking havoc on a smaller or lighter vehicle. However, this isn’t always the case, as demonstrated in this recent accident involving a C4 Corvette and a GMC Yukon.
According to a report by KOAM, both vehicles were headed northbound on North Rangeline Road in the evening of May 7th when the C4 Corvette driver lost control of their vehicle and barreled into the rear of a GMC Yukon. In a pit maneuver-like manner, the Yukon was struck just right so as to crash into a Kia parked in a nearby car lot, before ultimately overturning. Notably, a second vehicle in the car lot sustained minor damages.
As of the time of this writing, police are currently investigating the possibility of a third vehicle that could’ve potentially lead the C4 Corvette to lose control. However, it’s worth knowing that such a vehicle has not yet been confirmed or identified.
Two local towing companies removed both the C4 Corvette and GMC Yukon from the scene. In addition, the owner of the car lot inspected the damages to the other involved vehicle, but no cars were towed from the lot.
Thankfully, it does appear as though there weren’t any serious injuries sustained as a result of the accident, as both drivers of the C4 Corvette and GMC Yukon refused medical services, thus resulting in a non-injury crash.
Although it doesn’t appear as though any high speed antics were taking place before this incident, all of us here at GM Authority would like to take this opportunity to remind our readers to respect all traffic laws, and save the hijinks for the race track.
