The man behind the wheel of a C6 Corvette was injured and his sports car was quite damaged after he lost control on a public road in Chula Vista, California recently. Witnesses claim they saw the Chevy speeding down the road before the accident.

Watch a C8 Corvettes engine blow up.

As the Corvette was driving down Olympic Parkway on the morning of March 18, it veered into the center divider, hitting two trees, then a street light, flipping the sports car onto its roof. Injured, the driver was still able to crawl out of the vehicle before first responders arrived on the scene, reports 911 Video News.

Footage of the crash scene shows the C6 Corvette looking like a dead roach with its tires pointing towards the sky. Fiberglass panels were bent and shattered, at least one of the wheels showed considerable damage (likely from hitting the curb or trees), and were pretty sure the frame is bent, a lot.

In other words, we bet the insurance company will total this Chevy out. As for the drivers fate when it comes to coverage, everyone is free to speculate.

The guy we think was the driver was filmed sitting in the back of an ambulance with a far-off look on his face. Perhaps hes reconsidering some life choices or maybe insurance options.

Debris from the single-car collision reportedly was thrown into oncoming traffic, hitting at least one vehicle. Thankfully, nobody was injured by the flying debris. Still, such a sudden single-car accident had to have been scary not only for the C6 driver but everyone else in the area.

Some people are so tempted by the power of their performance car that they just cant help but drop the hammer and drive hard on public roads. The thing is this comes with quite a few risks, including unforeseen obstacles which can cause a vehicle pushing the envelope to go right over the edge and into the abyss.
