Four People Tragically Killed in Fiery Tesla Crash in Martin County, Florida

October 25, 2022

MARTIN COUNTY, FLORIDA - A tragic news story published on reports that four people passed away following a severe two-vehicle accident involving Tesla and a minivan in Martin County, Florida.*

It was reported that the Tesla burst into flames following the crash. According to one eyewitness, they attempted to rescue a teenager from their wrecked Tesla. The bystander stated that he was "face-to-face" with the entrapped teen. He then attempted to crawl underneath the vehicle to try and rescue the occupants of the Tesla. However, other people in the area stated that the car was going to explode. Sadly, the Good Samaritan "couldn't physically reach" the teen who was trapped inside the Tesla. The Good Samaritan also ran to the minivan to help the victims. He stated that he found a woman who was breathing. He then cut the woman out of her seatbelt and started administering CPR.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman, Indiana Miranda, the motor vehicle accident happened when the front of the  Tesla car crashed into the right front of the minivan at an intersection. The Tesla car then rolled over and caught on fire. The Tesla was traveling south on Federal Highway. The minivan was heading northbound on Federal Highway and was attempting to make a left turn at the intersection. The accident scene was covered in accident debris.

The Tesla driver tragically passed away in the collision. He was approximately 18 years old. His passenger, a female approximately the same age as the driver, was transported to a local area hospital, where she tragically succumbed to her life-threatening injuries.

The minivan driver, a 69-year-old man, also passed away in the car accident. His female passenger also passed away in the severe collision.

One distressed eyewitness stated that they saw the young kids being pulled out of the wrecked Tesla car. 

The cause of the fatal accident is under investigation by law enforcement. The names of those involved were not released to the public. The accident news report is still developing, and additional details will be provided by the reporters covering the news story.
