We often like to remind our readers about things that you shouldn’t do in your Corvette and driving while intoxicated is at the top of the list. Although it wasn’t a drunk Corvette driver that hit these new Corvettes at a Miami area Chevrolet dealer, you can see the carnage that can result to innocent people and property as a result of making the decision to drive while impaired.
The Chevy dealer that took the brunt from this drunk driver is Tropical Chevrolet, located on Biscayne Blvd in Miami Shores. Although details are sketchy, we spoke with a representative of the dealership who told us that on Wednesday, December 14 at around 3 am, a drunk driver lost control of his car and crashed into several new Corvette Grand Sports that were on display along the roadside. The driver wasn’t seriously injured in the accident, but you can see that some of these Corvettes look to be a total loss.
This isn’t the first time that a driver has used the new vehicles displayed at Tropical Chevy to stop their out-of-control cars. In 2007, a speeding Corvette traveling at 125 mph along the boulevard lost control and hit several SUVs. All of the them were destroyed as well along with the Corvette.
A special thanks goes out to ?Chevy Ruben? at Tropical Chevrolet for giving us permission to share these photos with you. If you are in South Florida and shopping for a new Chevrolet, give him a call at 305-778-7332 or check him out on Facebook.
