Wet Car Crash

Huntington Beach police officers arrested Corvette ZR1 driver, Melvin Brown, 52, with suspicion of driving under the influence. Why, you might ask?

Brown recently rear-ended an Infiniti G35 sedan after reportedly driving erratically at more than 100 miles per hour along the Pacific Coast Highway, causing both vehicles to land into the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve wetlands.

One man on the scene jumped into the water to save the sinking Corvette driver, who was then later arrested. The driver of the G35 was able to evacuate on his own since his vehicle was only partly under water. Both drivers were then taken to the hospital on non-life-threatening injuries.

Moral of the story: Don’t drink and drive. Drive responsibly. And, avoid submerging your vehicle in water – that’s never good!  Video included after the jump!

    I drive this stretch of PCH regularly and am amazed the Corvette got airborne. Despite what the police say, I think we can all see by the wheels, side cove, and removable roof panel that this was a stock C-6, not a ZR1.
