A video has surfaced online showing an aggressive Chevrolet Camaro driver tailgating and then brake checking a Tesla somewhere in the United States.
It is unclear if the Tesla model in question is a Model 3 or a Model S but footage from a dashcam and side-mounted cameras near the fenders, show the driver of the Camaro and clearly captures his license plate.
If you skip forward to around 2:50 in the video, you will see that the side cams show the driver of the white Camaro Convertible tailgating the driver of the Model 3 and driving erratically next to the Tesla as the two vehicles exit a highway. When the duo pull off, the Camaro driver pins the throttle of the muscle car and accelerates past the Tesla. He then cuts in front of the electric vehicle and slams on the brakes, resulting in a rather hefty collision.
The driver of the Camaro can then be seen jumping out of the car and gesticulating at the Tesla driver, even though he seems to be the one to blame for the collision.
The Tesla owner hasn’t said what the outcome was and states that they shared the footage online to help the insurance company, police, and prosecutor’s office.
