Brand Spanking New Tesla Model S Crashes
Wham Baam Teslacam has uploaded the video on YouTube. This channel creates content around Tesla cars. According to the information in the video, Jeramaine was traveling from the Tesla showroom in Pennsylvania to his hometown in Shreveport, Louisiana, in the USA. This was done in order to save the $1,400 shipping fee. He decided to take the EV home himself. That is a logical decision. However, around 3 hours into the journey, a car appeared from the opposite direction in the wrong lane.
Impressively, the driver, or the Tesla safety equipment combined, prevented the collision with the car. However, in a bid to do that, the right side of the Model S brushed against the truck moving in the adjacent lane. This made the EV spin around to the side of the road. Unfortunately, the truck hit the EV as the momentum was too high for the truck driver to apply brakes. Resultantly, the EV got destroyed in a matter of seconds.
