We only like the see cars swap paint when it’s called racing, and in this case, there are no winners. A red C5 Corvette is now missing a few parts after a colliding with a Cadillac on Long Island in Nassau County, N.Y.
After the crash the Corvette’s door wound up in the street about 30 feet away. The hood was ripped off, the windshield was smashed, and the airbags had deployed.
The female driver was briefly knocked unconscious by the collision, according to a neighbor who witnessed the event while she was taking out her trash.
?She was unconscious probably three or four minutes,? the witness said.
The witness noted that an elderly man was driving the Cadillac and said she believes more laws should be passed to prevent potentially unsafe drivers.
The Corvette driver was admitted to the intensive care unit, a source said. Fortunately, both drivers are expected to be OK after being transported to Nassau University Medical Center. While the drivers are (thankfully) okay, we can’t say the same thing for the poor ‘vette.
