Tesla speeding at 70 mph crashes into the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Ohio
A Tesla speeding at 70 mph, crashing into a convention center in Columbus, Ohio, shows footage of the crash.
The driver of the 2020 Tesla 3 crashed head-on into the Greater Columbus Convention Center on May 4 after the driver lost control of the brakes, according to a police report obtained by WBNS.
Video shows the car, drives at high speed, hits the curb and goes in the air over a staircase before emptying through the doors of the convention center. The car hits a support pillar inside and spins around 180 degrees before it finally stops moving.
The driver was transported to a local hospital where his condition was stable, police say. He was beaten with a quote for lack of control.
No one inside the facility was injured.
The crash caused damage of between 250,000 and 300,000 dollars, an official at the conference center told the outlet.
One witness told police that the Tesla appeared to have accelerated to make a yellow light down the block, according to a police report.
There are no indications that Tesla’s autopilot or full self-driving features caused the crash.
The National Transit Safety Board has not opened a formal investigation into the technologies’ involvement in the accident, Fox News reported.
