A recently-restored 1967 Chevrolet Corvette has been written-off, and its driver killed in a bizarre accident in a San Francisco-area cemetery.

The unidentified 52-year-old 'Vette driver sped into the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery early Sunday morning along with a newer Mercedes-Benz convertible, in what witnesses believe may have been an episode of road rage. The 'Vette driver lost control, crashing into a mausoleum and opening up two crypts as a group of mourners at an adjacent burial ceremony looked on, slack jawed.

The driver was pronounced dead at the Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, and authorities are looking to have a few words with the driver of the mystery Mercedes.
