A Subaru Outback driver found themselves in a rather sticky situation in Beverly Hills a couple days ago after curiously driving up onto a parked Tesla Model S.
These two images, released by the Beverly Hills Police Department on social media, show the Outback with its passenger side front wheel resting on the C-pillar of the Model S.
On first impressions, the images aren’t entirely convincing and you may be left wondering if they’re the work of a photoshop artist. However, we’re inclined to believe that they’re real since they were released by the Beverly Hills Police Department and it is far too early for an April Fools joke.
According to authorities, the Subaru driver aggressively “swerved to avoid a fox or a dog.”
What is particularly interesting about the whole scene is that neither the Subaru or Tesla appear to have suffered any significant cosmetic damage in the incident. Admittedly, the images are quite poor quality so it is hard to be sure but it seems apparent that neither car will require any seriously repairs. With that being said, the Subaru may have suffered some suspension damage would could be rather costly to fix.
However, things could have been much worse. If the Subaru was traveling slightly faster, it likely would have rolled onto its roof after hitting the Tesla, potentially injuring the driver.
