Ford Truck crashes into Chevrolet Corvette and landed on top of it; luckily driver of the sportscar miraculously survives
A Ford city truck in midtown Atlanta crashed into a fifth-generation Chevrolet Corvette and ended up being on top of the sports coupe. However, the driver of the Corvette survived luckily, but his car was not so lucky. It is not clear how the accident took place, but the image suggests the truck simply rammed into the red Corvette.
The Chevrolet Corvette is pretty low sitting car compared to the large and high riding truck obviously. This could be a reason, as the driver of the Ford truck could have missed the sports coupe until it was too late. No matter what, the scary image simply reveals how the beautiful Corvette was literally steamrolled by the large and heavy truck.
