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.
