A Lodi, California woman got a painful lesson on the dangers of speeding while under the influence last weekend. The unnamed woman was driving at an estimated 90 miles per hour in her 2011 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible when she struck a 1994 Pontiac Bonneville broadside in an intersection.

The impact was severe enough to cut the Bonneville in half.  The Pontiac’s driver and two passengers were all wearing seat belts, and somehow escaped with minor injuries.

The driver of the Corvette was not so lucky; following the impact, the car traveled another 700 feet before coming to rest upside down. The woman behind the wheel, who remarkably survived the accident, received severe injuries to her face and upper body and severed one of her hands in the crash. She was airlifted to a local hospital in serious condition.

  2. @Matt, the driver lost a hand in addition to sustaining severe facial and upper body injuries. I'd call that seriously hurt.

    You're absolutely correct about the passengers in the Pontiac, though. If they'd been driving just a hair slower (or if the Corvette was going slightly faster) it's likely that the outcome would have been much different.

  4. Now, every time she tries to do anything with her (non)hand she will remember how she nearly killed a family. The judge should make her do 200 hours of talking to people about drunk driving.
