Greenville, North Carolina — Breakups can be ugly; you can spend years together, form a bond that you think is unbreakable—and then next thing you know you’re upside in a ditch.
This is the story of a man and his Corvette.
Spencer Everette of Greenville, N.C. was supposed to sell his 2020 Corvette Stingray the next day.
This was supposed to be his “last hurrah” with the sportscar to which he had dedicated so much of himself.
Everette pulled onto Hwy. 11 and “gunned it.”
Overcome by long-suppressed emotions, regret and a severe loss of traction with the road, the couple found themselves in a literal rut—and upside down.
Everette wasn’t physically hurt in the crash.
North Carolina Highway Patrol charged Everette with reckless driving and advised him to spend some time learning to love himself.
