Corvette becomes unguided missile as driver becomes incapacitated


PORTAGE (WKZO) -- A mature couple from Portage suffered serious injuries when their car was struck by a runaway Corvette late Sunday morning.

A 60-year-old woman and her 59-year-old husband were sitting at a red light on Westnedge when a Richland man suffered a medical problem at the wheel of his “vette”, as he was exiting east bound off I-94.

He cut across several lanes of traffic and struck the car belonging to the Portage couple broadside, bounced off that vehicle and struck a Mercury van.

The Kalamazoo woman in the van and the driver of the corvette were treated for minor injuries.

The Portage Couple were admitted at Bronson Hospital.

It’s being investigated.
