apparently a Tesla is cut in half when crashing with a GTA.

I don't do facebook, but this link seems to work without a facebook account.

I don't see a GTA or GTR. I see a Mustang GT.

Edit: Didn't watch the video long enough. Got bored with the video.

Hard to understand but the white shorts/no shirt guy seemed to be the culprit.

You are correct. My guess is that daddy bought the car for him. Doubt he could afford a $110K car. Hope they take his license and all injured parties sue him for millions.

Yeah, the video definitely needed to be edited down by about half.

Impressive that there weren't a zillion little AA-sized batteries strewn across the street. The Tesla also appeared to be a loaner from a dealership.

And of course the obligatory comment "Aw, that'll buff right out".

Possibly a testament to the Tesla’s strength and safety and its ability to protect its occupants from a horrific situation.

it is unclear to me what happened to the rear seats. Do you think if there were someone in those seats they would be OK?

Not sure. One thing I’m familiar with from airplane crash worthiness design I learned is that if you can keep the passenger compartment from deforming, you go a long way towards increasing the survivability of the passengers. Anything outside that compartment that can be deformed or removed, will take energy away from the situation (that would otherwise be absorbed by the passengers). I don’t see the rear of the car attached anymore. That may be an intentional design feature in lateral load situations (compared to frontal or rear loads that would best be dealt with by crumple zones).

At about 1:08 it appears to show the rear seats are there and it kind of looks like the middle and left are okay but the right rear is leaned forward. They didn't split off with the rear of the vehicle.

Just an insane crash all the way around. Glad that (apparently) nobody was badly injured.

Right, I saw the seats too, but assumed s-t meant what the conditions might have been like in the rear of the passenger compartment.

Interestingly that’s a Model X. So it has a third row.. The missing section includes the third row. I can’t imagine the fate of anyone if they happened to be in the third row (in this instance there was no one) and something similar happened.

There are crumple zones to dissipate energy but this is total loss of cabin integrity. This would be bad for any car. It is amazing that people are walking around with the amount of energy in this crash.

The main issue with this video was not the length but being shot vertically.

Most likely the Mustang lost control and jumped the curb and hit the Tesla going the opposite direction.

Epic Driver fails aka ya can't fix Stupid.

Not saying that I have never fishy fishied before but I never hit more than a curb.

Okay there was a black ice bridge on the interstate that got me going in the wrong direction.

My point is, turning the steering wheel is not going to fix your traction problem.

Yes, that was pretty infuriating.

That's literally a crime scene, and there should have been more police sooner to preserve it.

Their response time to contain it seemed slow to me, but there may have been unavoidable circumstances.

Even when the last unit arrived, it took awhile before somebody started clearing people out.

The mustang was an innocent bystander. Farther up the street there is a white Nissan GTR thats mangled -- its what hit the Tesla.

Right, I don't think any car would've really survived with the passenger compartment intact during an impact of this type going at over 100 mph.

Freaking Florida....looking over his YouTube channel, it's pretty clear he's a reckless driver. It'll be only a matter of time before he kills someone. He needs his license yanked and be prevented from driving for a while.

He's an entitled kid from what must be a wealthy family.....affluenza indeed.

Hopefully the drivers of the damaged cars will sue him big time.

Yes, that was a big WTF! moment for me.

Around here he would have been arrested for felony reckless driving.

It could possibly be charged as a misdemeanor, but I think it would make the cut as a felony.

In S.F. that could be as lightweight an 'accident' as in FL.

My rant was about the EPIC MUSTANG FAILS COMPILATION video.

The white car that took out the Tesla had plenty of traction.

Obviously not a threat to himself or others,

Catch and Release.

In many states 30mph over the speed limit is a very serious offense and comes with lots of points.

Washington, 20+ over is instant reckless driving. Lots of tickets get written as 18 over as a signal to a judge that the offender already got a break from the officer. I got an 18 over for 90+ in a 60. Road was empty and the state trooper was impressed a Buick could go over Snoqualmie Pass at triple digits. I told the trooper everything was new and I considered it safe to about 150. He said do it on someone elses road. I agreed and left with my ticket.

For Florida:

Reckless driving is defined as "any person who drives any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property" (Florida Statute 316.192). As reckless driving is categorized as a misdemeanor in Florida, it has the potential to carry jail time. According to state statute 545.401, the punishment may include:

A $500 fine
Up to 90 days in jail
Both jail time and the fine combined
If you are convicted of a second offense, each of those possible punishments doubles; in that case, you could pay $1000 and spend up to 6 months behind bars.

If property damage is involved in the reckless driving incident, or you cause serious bodily harm to a passenger or another driver, you are facing a third degree offense. Third degree offenses are punishable by a fine of $5000 and up to 5 whole years in jail.

Reckless vs. Careless Driving

In Florida, there is a violation known as "careless driving," which slightly differs from the more serious charge of reckless driving. Careless driving is speeding, weaving through traffic, following too closely - but without "wanton disregard" for the safety of everyone around. These behaviors may be dangerous, but they are mostly unintentional slip-ups that drivers commit, such as not paying attention to the road, or misjudging your following distance. A careless driving citation will usually carry the option for dismissal with completion of a DHSMV-approved Florida traffic school course.

The penalties for careless driving vary based upon the severity of the infraction, and whether or not the police officer has substantial evidence for conviction in court.


Based upon the above, he should be charged with a third degree offense.
