During a test drive with a prospective buyer, a woman in her 20s crashed her Corvette into a tree and died, according to the OC Register. The victim was driving her 2003 gray Corvette in Laguna Hills at around 8:15 this morning when she lost control following a turn onto Mill Creek Drive, when the vehicle "skidded sideways, its driver's side door slamming into a tree. The car then apparently spun around before banging into another tree 20 feet onward." The impact left the windshield shattered and the driver's door hanging on a hinge, in addition to front-end and roof damage. The passenger, a 28-year-old man, "was taken to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo to be treated" for injuries described as "not life-threatening."
