A lesson why working on your car can be dangerous.
Only several days after a man and his dog died from heat exhaustion after getting trapped in a 2007 Corvette, another Corvette-related tragedy has occurred. According to the CBS News Detroit affiliate, a 65-year-old man, whose name hasn’t been released, was killed while trying to replace the taillights on his Corvette. Apparently the guy was working underneath the car when it suddenly rolled back and pinned him to the ground.
The police said the Corvette’s transmission was in reverse at the time of the accident. Obviously no foul play is suspected and the police have declared this to be an accident. Still though, take this as a safety reminder to anyone who works on their own cars, especially when going underneath them.
