    A witness told KTLA that the Tesla hit the pole and split in half, and that part of the vehicle landed on top of a white car.

    “There were fires after that that broke out,” Eric Martinez said. “I saw the firefighters — like 25 firefighters – standing around the white car with the Jaws of Life.” Martinez added that at one point, explosions could be heard.

    “We originally thought it was fireworks. Everybody thought it was fireworks that were just exploding,” he said.

    gas tanks can explode too.

    The same thing happened at my local Apple store; the technician left my portable dissembled while they ordered parts. It caught fire over night.

    have you ever seen Lithium burn? I have. I'll take my chances with a gas tank.

    Yeah, I thought there was something familiar about that wad of tin foil. That's the exact same car that I drive. (They spent six hours trying to cut the passenger out of that. (She died in agony, btw.) The driver must have been a thin layer of paste.)

    1) Don't drive like a dumb-fuck
    2) Don't be a luddite. Retards are so unattractive.

    I actually missed this accident by a few hours Thursday night coming back from the gym, you definitely don't do 100 mph on any street in LA, even at 12:30am, there had to be some traffic on La Brea, not to mention the changing traffic lights. The shit uneven road pavement and pot holes alone would send the car flying at that speed.

    Tesla is examining the wreckage, much like Porsche examined the Paul Walker crash

    100mph, just a number.
    google is saying the car can do 0-100 MPH in 13 sec
