Ouch. A 21-year-old woman who was allegedly driving too fast apparently lost control of her Mercury SUV and skidded through a yard before going airborne and landing in the garage of another home next door. When the Mountaineer came to rest, it had inadvertently unpimped the rides of one Frank Taylor. Taylor's beloved 1980 Corvette and his brand new BMW were parked inside the garage at the time. The cars were given a custom body makeover courtesy of the Merc's undercarriage. Police suspect that drugs and/or alcohol may have played a part in the incident. Although the driver wasn't injured, the passenger was, and the young lady behind the wheel will most likely be hurting in a different way when charges are filed.

Thanks for the tip, Jeremy!

      Further proof that women should not be allowed to drive SUVs.

      Oopsie daisy!

      In other news, accidents happen.

      "Women can't drive!", let me just laugh at that. Men can't drive either.

      Nobody is a perfect driver. Get over it.

      I love finding new places to fix my cars. I wish I knew more about them, but I really don't know much. It makes it difficult to work on them. http://www.completefurnitureservice.com

      Speeding never pays off. It really is good no one was injured significantly. I'm sure his emotions were hurt some seeing those cars get destroyed. But good thing for insurance. http://www.nocavitybug.com/treatment.html

      This is no surprise, women under 30 are the most aggressive drivers on the road. Especially those in SUV's or crap cars like the Cavalier/Sunfire.

      37, remember that guy with the j-body tattoo? 'nuff said.

      More driver training FTW. I really think that people that do dumb things like this should have their liscenses REVOKED. Driving should be a privilege, not a right. Maybe then people would take it seriously.

      why can't the man's insurance pay? isn't that why insurance was invented? now it's just a way to rip people off.

      P.S.What SUV get "airborne"? I have enough trouble trying to get my Exige "airborne" (not that i've tried, of course)

      How much of idiot behind the wheel must you be to get your suv "airborne" in a neighborhood to get it to land in a garage. Too bad for for the guys Corvette. He should definately make her pay for the damage of both cars, which I'm assuming he will be doing.

      The most shocking party of the story: "beloved 1980 Corvette." The only sentence where "beloved" and "1980 corvette" belong in the same sentence is: She is my beloved because she was able to unload my 1980 Corvette on some poor sap.

      #35 are you crazy?
      The driver at fault pays.
      If the driver at fault has insurance, then the insurance company of the faulty driver pays.

      It's hard for cars parked in a garage to be at fault.
