This is the first known crash of a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray, less than a month after the car made its public debut.

It didn't take long to see the first crashed Stingray as this blue one was involved in an accident last week somewhere in Arizona. The C7 "hit guardrail on left and bounced back to rocks".

It happened on a section of tight switchbacks so chances are the speed of the Stingray wasn't that high but judging by the car's inclination against the rock wall and the distance off the road, the driver probably wasn't trying to get good mileage.

Information about who was behind the wheel is not available but most likely it's either someone from a dealership or a GM driver since the car is very new and won't be available at (top) dealers until late summer.
