Pickup Truck Lands on a C5 Corvette in Rural Indiana Crash
It’s not often that you see a pickup truck on top of a Corvette, but that was the case last week in Northern Indiana.
A 54-year-old Ligonier, Indiana man in a red C5 Corvette was trying to pass a line of cars along State Route 9 in Noble County when he crashed into a pickup that was turning left onto County Road 850N.
The resulting accident left the Corvette driver, Teddy Martin, in critical condition, but 16-year-old Quinn Groff of Ligonier escaped unhurt from his pickup. Two passengers in Groff’s truck were also not injured, including Harley N. Beechy, 19, and Carter P. Schrock, 25, both of Millersburg, Indiana.
The two vehicles ended up in a cornfield, pointing in opposite directions and causing a fire, but everyone got out of their cars before authorities reached the scene.
The rear wheels of the truck appear to be resting on the windshield of the Corvette, which is also missing its hood and seems to be a little closer to the ground after the mishap.
