Guys, where do we start with this video? Yes, we had a very distracted driver in a Corvette convertible that crashed into the back of a Lexus. But it’s one of the few facepalm moments seen in this short Instagram clip, pinned below for your viewing pleasure. Or maybe displeasure, depending on how you feel about the C8′ Vette.
Post comes from lsx.videos on Instagram and at face value, it’s pretty easy. We had two people in a C8 Corvette driving straight into the back of what looked like a Lexus LX 570. In fact, we only had one man in the Corvette, because the others took the station at the back of the C8 because the seats were boring. Other than the accident, it was the number two facepal moment.
Facepalm number three is at the beginning of the video, because the driver almost lost passenger rider from behind with a short burst of acceleration. That could explain the distracted driver, looking back to make sure his friend wasn’t plastered on the road. But no explain why a car drives on the shoulder of the road between traffic and parked cars. Yup, that’s the fourth one carelessness from this saga, but the fifth and final facepalm is not connected to the Corvette.
The honor goes to the Lexus, stopping almost perpendicular to the road with the front clearly crossing the double yellow line. We can see oncoming traffic coming to a halt due to maneuvers, not to mention the car from which this video was shot. The SUV actually recoils when the Corvette hijacks it, making us wonder what kind of crazy crime is going on here. However, the back of the large white SUV is not visible to the driver of the C8.
Fortunately, the collision was at a low speed and no one appeared to be injured. We didn’t see any obvious damage to the Lexus, but ‘Vette’s front clip is well and truly shattered. The steam from the radiator shows it’s not just cosmetic.
With so many driving errors in the span of just a few seconds, some kind of collision was inevitable. Stay safe out there, but also, use common sense. You’d be amazed at how many dangerous situations can be avoided just by seeing where you’re going.
