The Chevrolet Corvette is a proud icon of the American motor industry. It is not built to be a crash barrier for drunk drivers, yet that's exactly what happened at Tropical Chevy in Miami Shores earlier this month. In the early hours of December 14th a drunk driver lost control while driving down Biscayne Boulevard and crashed into a row of Vettes.
The incident happened at about 3 a.m., and the driver rammed into the first in a row of Corvette Grand Sports. According to CorvetteBlogger.com
, the driver didn't suffer any serious injuries, but we can't say the same about the sports cars.
Amazingly, this isn't the first time a driver has rammed into cars sitting on the Tropical Chevrolet lot. Back in 2007
, a driver speeding down Biscayne Boulevard at about 125 mph lost control, went airborne, and landed atop a row of Chevy SUVs. Ironically, the speeding driver was behind the wheel of a Corvette.Follow Miami New Times on Facebook and Twitter @MiamiNewTimes.
