Man Crashes Test Drive Vehicle into Power Pole, Insurance Agency

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A test drive for one potential car buyer resulted in an accident Tuesday evening on the southside of town, causing damage to a local business and knocking down a power pole.

It was shortly before 6 p.m. when police said a Mustang was making a turnaround to the eastbound side of the SPID frontage road on Weber. The driver sped up and lost control, forcing the vehicle sideways and colliding with a power pole, knocking it down.

The impact caused the Mustang to ricochet into the front of an insurance agency building.

The driver was cited for failure to control speed, but what made matters worse was the fact that the vehicle was not his; at least, not yet.

"That's right. I guess you break it you buy it," said Ernest Coronado of the Corpus Christi Police Department.

Just before the accident, police were actually on the scene of another collision between a white pickup truck and a Mercedes at Weber and SPID. The white pickup ended up on its side, but the driver was okay. A mother and young child in the Mercedes were transported to the hospital. They too are expected to be okay.
