This crash happened Sunday afternoon in Bellevue, Washington. Witnesses say the 52 year old male was driving at a high rate of speed down I-90 in a 1968 Corvette. He lost control, crashing into a barrier and landing upside down, partially ejecting him from the Corvette. He survived the crash and was rushed to Overlake Hospital in Bellevue with serious injuries.

He was later arrested for DUI after police found alcohol to be the likely factor in the crash.

Hate to say it (to see a nice Vette die) but HA HA There isn't one thing I HATE more than a drunk driver. It's the stupidest most selfish act you can do and is 100% preventable.

That is why I will not operate anything with a motor in it, not even my electric shaver, after I have partaken in an adult beverage.

The guy has not only lost his 43 year old classic Corvette but he will also have a pretty hefty fine to pay. And he'll have to attend traffic school. And he may lose his job if he drives anything for a living. I'm very glad he didn't hurt anyone else.
