Elon Musk can no longer say that no ones ever died in a Tesla automobile crash. Earlier this month, 26-year-old Joshua Slot managed to successfully ride off with a Model S hed stolen from a Tesla service center, but police quickly spotted the luxury vehicle and gave chase. According to Park Labrea News, the high-speed pursuit was eventually called off after officers were involved in a fender bender of their own, leaving the police department strained for resources and without any feasible way of catching up to Slot. Reports claim he was traveling at speeds of nearly 100 mph, but losing the police tail apparently didnt convince Slot to hit the brakes. The final impact was severe enough to split the Tesla in half and eject Slot from the cars remains.
