Guardrail Impales Tesla Model 3, Driver Makes It Out Unhurt!

There are many lucky people on this Earth; and there’s this Tesla Model 3 driver, who miraculously escaped unharmed after a freak accident.

Their Model 3 was pierced from front to back by a guardrail in Dade County, Florida, with the metal bar entering through the front bumper, crossing through the middle of the passenger compartment and exiting through the trunk.

Naturally, the severe accident attracted a lot of attention from bystanders, and some of them took videos that they posted on social media. According to their descriptions, the crash took place in Dade County, Florida and, most importantly, the driver escaped unhurt!

Imagine that: a car gets impaled by a massive guardrail and the driver gets to walk away unscathed. If that’s not a miracle escape, we don’t know what is…

There aren’t many details available at the moment about the crash, but we’re willing to bet speed and/or distraction played a role in it. The particular Model 3 is apparently registered in Memphis, Tennessee. Interestingly, the videos show the car’s lights function despite the big metal bar that split it in half. Even the infotainment screen appears to be in working order, which means the electrical system wasn’t damaged by the crash.

Feel free to fill us in on this crash if you know more details about how it happened and what exactly is the condition of the driver. If the comments are true and they indeed escaped without any injuries, then they should count their blessings. And, if possible, ensure that something like that doesn’t happen again.

 

This driver should play the lotto

    driving like a jackass?

    • Jay

      Yes but it isn’t supposed to impale the vehicle either.

      • Paul

        That’s the point. The structure is supposed to be strong enough or built as such to deflect it.

        • Six_Tymes

          its an EV, it does not have an engine up front. Engines act as a form of barrier. SO, if you RAM any metal guard rail head on at high speed with just about any EV, what do think will happen?

    Florida… there’s something in the drinking water.

  • Arthur Burnside

    Reminds me of the WWII event in which a Sherman tank driver and right seat gunner felt the heat of a round from a Panther tank, which passed between them and exited the rear. Neither was harmed.
    Pure luck in this Tesla case, nothing but luck. Autopilot probably decided that aiming straight for the guardrail was the correct path – Autopilot is anything BUT an autopilot – I would ride in or drive using Autopilot – it is downright goofy and confused. And has been deadly multiple times.

    • Ken Lyns

      Autopilot in airliners is typically a very dumb system. Never understood why the car-buying public expect it to be better.

  • Paul

    What if there was an actual engine in the front, I wonder if the result would have been different? Most likely so, I think.

    • Exotics

      Of course. A liquid fueled explosion perhaps.

      • Paul

        Or maybe… nothing as bad because an engine would have provided more substance to prevent further penetration or else… maybe it would have sent an engine into the passenger compartment and caused a lot more mayhem. It’s anybody’s guess I think.

  • Exotics

    Ya, it’s boring seeing the safest sedan on our planet protect the lives of its drivers. Tesla is such a terrible American car company for making the safest cars possible.

    Rofl. You’re weird.

  • Exotics

    That is utterly amazing and insane. Any car with an engine would have exploded and the driver might not have been so lucky to get out unscathed.

    • meyerweb

      No. Cats only explode in the movies.

      • You watch movies about exploding cats? I’d see a doctor if I was you…

    “Guardrail Impales Tesla Model 3” “Model 3 was pierced from front to back by a guardrail ” The guard rail did absolutely nothing. The Tesla did nothing. These are inanimate objects.

    The DRIVER of the Tesla impaled his vehicle on a guardrail.

    • meyerweb

      Unless autopilot.

  • diesel_vdub

    I think everyone has it wrong here. This is a complete and total failure of the Tesla to allow the driver to get their Darwin award. Better luck next time buddy.
