Default Wrecked Corvettes I-65 South Alabama

Sad site today in Alabama on I-65 South. Looks like 2 trucks wanted the same position and the brand new Corvettes took the impact. Hopefully the pictures will post below. I guess the only positive, probably a good deal on a very low mile Corvette with a few scratches!!

Day-am! Somebody is going to be waiting a little longer for their dream car. I wonder if they consider the entire load a loss for insurance purposes and what happens to the undamaged cars?

WORST FEAR when a Corvette is traveling down the road in someone else's control

DAMN, DAMN, DAMN!

Wow, just Wow! You just never know what can happen. I would bet only 3 or 4 cars were damaged.

How would like to be waiting for your ordered car only to find out it was totaled before it got off the truck?

Wow. How rare it is to see a truckload of new Corvettes let alone one wrecked. Great photo capture.

Sure, there's plenty of stock, but I hope one of those was not someone's custom-ordered pride and joy.

It's just a surface scratch, I am sure they will patch that up and nobody will know

Looks like 3 of them were hit pretty good. What a shame! I wonder what happens to these damaged new Vettes?

So it looks like that container truck changed lanes without looking.

Nice cargo insurance claim...Dump Truck owner vs. Car carrier...I can't imagine they will fix these cars and attempt to resell them.
I don't know the law on that aspect but any insurer who now "owns" these cars likely would not take on the liability.
Who in their right mind would want one at even 25 cents on the dollar?
Definitely feel for the intended buyer.

Absolutely unbelievable. I'm thinking someone on this Forum is waiting for his car to be delivered and happens to read this post. Frantic phone calls to follow.
