He loses control and destroys his C3 Chevrolet Corvette
Without airbags, it must have hurt...
This video is the result of an explosive cocktail between an old rear-wheel drive car and poor control of the vehicle. A car filmed the sequence from the back, so it means we don't know exactly what happened just before the accident. Fortunately, with the wide-angle camera, it is still possible to analyse the scene properly.
Given the position in which the third-generation Corvette arrives, it is more than obvious that the driver pushed the accelerator too hard and was surprised. As a result, he was unable to keep the car in a straight line. The latter then started to slide and then to pass the central divider separating the two carriageways before hitting an oncoming car.
There is no information regarding the consequences of this accident, but it is very possible that the Corvette driver was injured, as he was not wearing his seat belt and his car was not equipped with airbags. As a result, the man's head and chest must have hit the steering wheel of the vehicle hard.
On the other hand, the driver of the blue Nissan will most likely fare better because his car is much newer. We can see that the airbags triggered and that the car had the front fender heavily damaged. That's a good thing because it's a sign that the crumple zones did their job of absorbing the impact perfectly.
