Nissan GT-R Strikes Tesla Causing Tesla to Break in Two
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL- Carscoop.com writes that a Nissan GT-R drove through a red traffic light in Hallandale Beach, Florida, and struck a Tesla Model X. The force of the crash removed the rear of the Tesla from just behind the back seat. Even the rear tires were severed from the front half of the Tesla.*
Witnesses confirm that the Nissan violated the traffic signal and collided with the Tesla. The extent of the damage indicates that the Nissan must have been traveling at an alarmingly high rate of speed, especially for the urban area in which the wreck occurred.
The man operating the Tesla survived the crash but suffered injuries. The victim reported that the other vehicle came so fast he never saw it, but simply felt the impact. The two people in the Nissan were transported to the hospital. The driver and his girlfriend are both expected to recover from their injuries.
The force of the collision pushed the Tesla into to other vehicles- a Ford Mustang and a Volkswagen Golf and debris flew across the intersection.
The images from the scene shoe a bizarre picture of the Tesla missing the back two wheels and rear, which landed dozens of feet from the front of the car. The GT suffered severe front-end damage. Debris from the collision is spread across the crowded intersection, making it fortunate that no pedestrians were struck by the flying wreckage.
Reports do not indicate the reason the driver of the Nissan violated the traffic light, nor do they indicate what if any charges have been filed in relation to the crash.
