Tesla Model S Accident: Son Crashes Father’s Car

This month hasn’t been the best for the Tesla Model S, with drivers all across the world acting in the worst ways, from running from the police to confusing the two pedals, causing one Model S crash after another.

Well, today we have yet another Model S accident that took place in the US. This time, an example of the vehicle was introduced to a set of trees, with the car suffering moderate damage, at least judging from what we can see in the adjacent images. The details of the crash are sketchy, but wreckedexotics writes the damage on the sedan is worth US$ 30,000 (EUR).

It appears that a son was driving his father’s car, having possibly stolen the keys. The youngster didn’t manage to dig to deep into the driving range though, with the accident taking place some 10 yards (meters) away from the driveway where the Tesla had been peacefully resting.

The driver accidentally pushed the throttle, with the instant electric torque working against the car on this occasion. The same reason is believed to be sitting behind the now famous crash that saw a Model S run into a dealership sign at the Tesla factory in Freemont, California.

Still, Tesla Model S “father and son” jobs haven’t always been this lousy. We’ll remind you that, back in 2012, such a team became the first to squeeze over 400 miles (km) of range out of a Model S. It’s just that the son, age 12, didn’t exactly drive the car, whereas our hero chose a different path.
