Lol. Of course it’s a TESLA not a CAR.
I wonder if its the same energy when it’s a Ford or a Toyota?
Pretty sure there is no CAR in the world that is 100% accident proof.

The incident happened last week and police were quoted as saying by 10 WBNS that the driver of the 2020 Telsa Model S was travelling on Vine Street at a very high speed and had jumped a red light before crashing into the center. The police also added that the driver informed them that he lost control of his brakes but managed to maintain a speed of 70 mph.
The driver was cited for the car going out of control. As per the 10 WBNS report, two witnesses informed the police that the driver appeared to increase the speed to make it past a yellow light. Another witness said that it appeared that the driver did not try to apply brakes before crashing into the building. The driver was taken to the hospital and his condition was stable.
