A group of onlookers was struck by a C6 Corvette while capturing video at a sideshow-style car meet, and the results were recently posted online showing the moment of impact.
Although details of the event and video are hard to come by, it looks as through this meet-up happened somewhere in Florida. The video description says the event was “legal,” but was more likely just held in some abandoned lot, rather than on public streets.
The video is only a few seconds long, and opens with a broad, open piece of tarmac ringed with people. We see several cars doing burnouts and donuts, with passengers hanging out of the windows. You know, typical sideshow stuff.
For some reason, there are a few stacks of tires seen around the outer edge of the open lot. There’s obviously no safety benefit in randomly stacking up tires – it’s not like they’re going to stop anything. If they’re there to mark the edge of the pit, they’re not really working either, as we see several onlookers on the wrong side. More on them in a second.
As the video gets under way, we see a blue C6 Corvette slide in from the left-hand side of the screen. The rear end pirouettes around with speed, slamming right into a few onlookers trying to capture video.
The hit is brutal. One onlooker is punched back into the crowd, his hat flying off his head. Another onlooker wearing a pink shirt goes head first into the rear glass of the C6 Corvette and ends up getting carried several feet into the crowd. Several other onlookers appear as though they were sideswiped as well.
Seeing the accident is pretty disturbing. The folks who get hit try to get off the ground, obviously in a daze from what happened. The guy in the trunk has to be yanked out by another onlooker before the C6 Corvette is driven away.
No word on injuries, but it’s pretty damn obvious there were more than a few:
