And the car didn't even belong to him.
What you see before you are the remains of a 1996 Chevrolet Corvette. Yes, those are wooden beams from a fence stick out the back and sides of the car. No one was killed or even injured in this pre-Christmas crash, but the guy driving Corvette wasn't even its owner. Police, fire, and rescue services were called early in the morning of December 21 after it was reported that a car had driven off the road and was heavily damaged. The incident took place at Katama airfield on Martha's Vineyard, off the Massachusetts coast.
When rescue services arrived at the scene they found the wrecked car but no driver. In fact there weren't any traces of the driver. No blood and no other signs of injury anywhere. Even after searching the area the driver couldn't be found. Police soon identified the owner as a 74-year-old woman. However, she wasn't driving the Corvette when the accident happened. The culprit turned out to be 39-year-old Oulton A. Hues Jr., who was found on a nearby property. He admitted to taking the Corvette for a joyride and after hitting 75 mph, he lost control and collided with the fence. He then left the scene, walked home, and called a tow truck. Police charged him for leaving the scene of property damage, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and speeding.
