Tesla Crash Test: What Happened to This Model S in a Parking Lot Charging
"The car appeared new when I arrived at the Aria 4:45pm Sunday evening. It had a license plate on the front that said Zero Emissions. The chargers were full, so I parked my Leaf in a normal spot," writes Matthew Royer from Las Vegas, sharing this image of this crashed Tesla in LEAF Owners public group on Facebook.
I asked Matthew if he could tell us more about the incident. He wrote that when he exited the Aria Resort and Casino at 11:05 PM the Tesla was as pictured and there was an Aria security vehicle there with the Tesla.This means the car was parked there and waiting for the owner for six hours or more.
Resorts have good security cameras and the most awesome video surveillance systems. It should be easy for the security personnel to reconstruct what happened with this Tesla Model S. Shouldn't be hard to figure out who did it if they didn't leave a note. On the plus side, with no engine up front, it might even be cheaper to repair than a luxury ICE car, wrote one member in one of the discussion forums regarding this accident.
What do you think, what happened here? Now you see that a dashcam with parking mode, is a necessary item.
