First crash for the 2013 Dodge SRT Viper

I have no idea what was wrong with Chrysler engineer, Martin Morse. We have yet to even see a few, if at all, of the 2013 Dodge SRT Viper on our shores or in other parts of the world. Yes, the car was launched just not so long ago, it's the latest Viper from the American automaker Dodge which means it's still a fresh model. Yet, Morse had already ruined one good example of the model.

On 22nd April 2013, according to eyewitnesses, the car should have been going at a speed beyond 112km/h on US Highway 23. According to Michigan State Police, the temperature on that day was near-freezing and there was also light rain. The police believed that Morse must have flexed the snake's muscles too hard.

Morse lost control of the car, slided across lanes and then hit a fence that separated the highway northbound and southbound lanes. Fortunately enough, the car was pretty low that it managed to get through the upper and middle cables.

Unfortunately, being low as it was, the car couldn't get past the bottom cable. I believe that it must have been the bottomcable, a thick braided cord made of steel, that had caused Morse his death, as the cable cut through the car's cabin. Furthermore, it has been confirmed that there was no mechanical fault involved in the incident. So, it seems that Morse had pushed the throttle too much under wrong weather conditions.
