A Nissan 350Z driver who crashed while reportedly street racing early in the morning in January in the Tampa, FL, area absolutely devastated a Cadillac dealership.
The collision took out seven crossovers, the very thing Cadillac depends on so greatly for sales, as well as the dealership sign.
It’s a potent lesson in the stupidity and dangers of street racing, although we know some people still won’t listen.
It’s obvious the Nissan was really ripping down the road when the driver lost control. While 350Zs aren’t exactly lightweight cars, the fact it was able to take out the sign and so thoroughly demolish seven crossovers is a testament to extreme speed being a factor. This is why racing on the drag strip, where there are safety measures, is always the better choice.
The person who posted this video claims the driver of the Nissan 350Z walked away from the crash with only some minor scratches. A search for news about the wreck returned no local stories, so we have no way of confirming if that was the case. However, if true, it’s a miracle there were no serious injuries, not to mention a fatality.
Video of the aftermath of the wreck shows the 350Z flipped on its roof, barely recognizable, and it’s not much better for most of the Caddies. A fire broke out, torching some of the vehicles and leaving plenty of charred debris on the ground. Mixed into the mangled crossovers are pieces of the dealership sign.
