The Corvette Z06 may not look like much to you after this accident in California, but to the lucky driver who survived this horrific crash, it looks mighty beautiful, no doubt.

On Monday, he was driving his C6 Corvette on the southbound 405 Freeway in Sepulveda Pass when he somehow rammed into the back of a box truck and was stuck.

These photos show emergency personnel extracting the man from beneath the truck. He told officials that he ducked at the last minute, a move that likely saved his life. In one photo, he’s shown sitting upright and his head is just about in line with the bottom of the truck.

The accident happened shortly after 11 o’clock Monday night near Getty Center Drive in the Sepulveda Pass, which is a mountain pass through the Santa Monica Mountains in Los Angeles that connects the Los Angeles Basin to the San Fernando Valley via the San Diego Freeway (I-405).

Fortunately, the man, who was conscious during the entire ordeal, was carried to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The same can’t be same for this beautiful black Z06, which was basically destroyed from the windshield forward. That’s one tough way to transform a Z06 into a convertible.

The cause of the accident is unknown, but the investigation continues.

Thanks for the tip, Todd!
