Default C5 Corvette Destroyed in Long Island Accident

You might call it the battle of the GM cars, but in this case, there were no winners. A red C5 Corvette is now missing a few parts after colliding with a Cadillac on Long Island last Friday.

The female driver of the Corvette was briefly knocked unconscious by the collision and was taken to the hospital. We understand that both drivers will be okay, but that Corvette is fubar:

I work close to where that happened and I didnt hear anything about it till now. Glad to hear all involved are OK. Glad to see the C5 is good at protecting the occupants, contrary to what a lot of folks think about Corvettes, they really are pretty safe cars.

HOLY CRAP! That had to have been quite the collision! It doesn't look like a road that would have higher than a 40 mph speed limit or so. Glad to hear that Vette did it's job of protecting the driver and that she will be ok.

I see 2 tires on the ground. A hit like that must have broke loose the
C5 spare from under the car
