First-Gen Dodge Viper Crashes While Racing Integra: Attack Of The ’90s

Nobody appears injured, but the Viper could be totaled.

First and foremost, the good news. As far as we can tell, no one was hurt in this accident. There were no bodily injuries, in other words. This first-generation Dodge Viper R/T10 has seen better days, and we assume the driver has a shattered ego as well as a broken heart.

Through the Radwood Facebook page, which celebrates all things automotive from the 1980s and 1990s, photos of this legendary 1990s supercar appeared in our feed. A video recorded by Kyle Andrew Robertson, who captured the closing minutes of this red Viper as it squared off against a classic Acura Integra, was linked in the post. As you can see, the Viper did not fare well.

We don’t have all the details leading to this unfortunate outcome, but we do know it happened in Dayton, Ohio. Apparently, there was a car meet in the area last weekend, and folks were capturing video as the participants left the scene. We don’t know if it was a Radwood-style event, but this OG Viper ended up next to a modified Integra at a traffic light. So for one brief moment, a low-revving V10 and a high-strung Honda VTEC four-pot filled the air with all the 1990s glory they could muster.

Unfortunately, that’s the high point of this 25-year-long struggle. The engine of the Integra rushes away from the crossroads, bouncing off the rpm limiter. To the Viper driver’s credit, the bait appears to be ignored at first. However, after passing the Acura and crossing the junction, the Viper rapidly veers to the right, slamming into a pole and coming to a stop facing the street. The video then turns to a close-up of the damaged Viper, which reveals extensive damage to the hood and front fascia.

So what happened? Aside from the obvious, commenters in the video said the weather was a bit chilly. That’s never good for finding grip in a rear-wheel-drive car with gobs of torque and no traction control. This particular stretch of road also turns very slightly to the right, and if we had to guess, we’d say the Viper driver rolled onto the throttle after shifting into second. Add it all up, and you have a recipe for a viral car video.

Obviously, we’re glad to hear of no injuries in this crash. And we know we sound like the grumpy old guy every time we type this, but just take it easy on the streets, okay? Let’s not see any more wrecks, especially rad classics like this one.
