Man Crashes His Corvette Twice In Seven Minutes

| by Kathryn Schroeder

A man from New Boston, New Hampshire, crashed his corvette twice the evening of April 15.

Kevin Cullinane, 54, the driver of a white Chevrolet Corvette with a license plate that reads "Culnane," was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident involving two vehicles at 7:15 p.m., according to Goffstown police, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.

Witnesses described the vehicle that fled the scene as being a late-model Chevrolet Corvette.

Then, after a 7:22 p.m. crash at a second location in Manchester, Cullinane was detained by witnesses when he tried to leave the scene, police said. Witnesses said the Corvette was traveling at a high rate of speed and weaving through traffic when it hit the other vehicle, causing it to collide with a telephone pole.

It was when Manchester police responded to the second crash that Goffstown officials told them about the one that had occurred just a few minutes earlier.

There were no serious injuries reported in either of the crashes.

Cullinane was charged in Manchester with conduct after an accident, operating under the influence of drugs, and reckless operation.

Charges in Goffstown are pending against him.

In 2015, a similar dual-crash night occurred in Ohio -- and the driver was in a Corvette.

The driver of the Corvette, who was believed to be operating the vehicle while under the influence, fled the scene of a head-on crash in Trotwood around 11:30 p.m., WHIO reported. The crash caused the driver of the other car, a Chevrolet Impala, to become trapped inside the vehicle.

Then, about a mile from the first accident, the driver of the Corvette is said to have collided with a tree.

Clayton police said they suspected the driver of the Corvette had been driving well over the posted speed limit. Neither the Corvette driver or the one operating the Impala were injured in either crash.

A hit and run charge can be treated as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on state law and the extent of the accident, according to Free Advice Legal. If seen as a misdemeanor, it is likely the defendant will pay a fine, restitution, court costs, and possibly serve jail time. If it is a felony charge, the consequences are more extensive. If a person was injured or killed in the crash, the punishment could be up to five years in prison. Drivers who flee the scenes of accidents may also have their driver's license revoked.
