Security footage of it going airborne. Looks to have been traveling quite fast indeed. Ludicrously fast.

A 2016 four-door Tesla was speeding north along Little Avenue in Barrie, a city in Central Ontario, when it hit an area of steep incline near some railroad tracks and launched into the air, police said.

It crashed into a tree out of frame. Pretty sure they made the identification there.

Glad school children weren't hurt in this crash.

Security footage captured a Tesla Model S getting an incredible amount of air after speeding over railroad tracks in Barrie, Ontario yesterday. The car lost control on landing, and crashed into the parking lot of an elementary school. The driver was reportedly charged with dangerous driving.

Speaking of flying vehicles...

I wonder how far back it hit the strips.

What we saw certainly wasn't 115mph. Not even close. The driver probably slowed while trying to find a way around them.

the vehicle became airborne and crashed over 100 feet into the opposing lane," said Constable Sarah Bamford of the Barrie Police Department.


Woah, how wide are the lanes in Canada?
