Due to Tesla’s built-in dashcam and Sentry Mode technology, we get to see footage of this crash from multiple angles.
If you woke up to find a car had crashed into your property, you’d surely be quite upset. If the vehicle was a Tesla, you may immediately assume that the car’s Autopilot technology was to blame. This is only if you regularly watch the news and spend time on social media, of course. This is because Tesla receives constant scrutiny over the safety of its semi-autonomous driving technology.
In this case, whether or not Tesla Autopilot was engaged is a moot point. As you can see from the video, the Model 3 was proceeding down the highway when a Toyota RAV4 seemingly lost control and came over the center divider and collided with the Tesla. This impact pushed the Model 3 off the road and caused it to lose control and run into a fence at someone’s private residence. Fortunately, it came to a stop before hitting the house.
The RAV4 proceeded to flip over after the impact. It doesn’t appear that any other cars were involved. Thankfully, at least according to the video publisher, despite the car being totaled, the Model 3 driver was okay. However, we don’t have any further details at this time.
