This is the sad sight of the first known crash that involved a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. As always, the first reported crash of a supercar is a big deal for every car lover. 

Apparently, the crash took place somewhere in Arizona after the driver of the Corvette Stingray lost control of the sports car, sending it against a wall of rock. 

How did it happen? Here is the official explanation, given to Motor Authority by Corvette communications representative Monte Doran:

"We can confirm that during routine testing, a Stingray was involved in a one-car accident. During evaluation, the inside tire caught the edge of the pavement during a tight corner, leading to the accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt, the car received only minor damage, and no citations were issued."

According to the forum member who posted the photo at Digital Corvettes, the car was in worse shape than the photo suggests. Anyway, we hope nobody was seriously hurt in this crash.
