A Tesla Model 3 crashed on Tuesday in Corvallis, Oregon, flinging hot
battery cells far from the crash site.

Two cells broke through nearby windows — one landed in someone's lap, while the other landed on a bed and caught the sheets on fire, the police said.

The Corvallis Police Department said the driver was going over 100 mph and
sustained only minor injuries.

Tesla has caught heat in the past for its battery packs bursting into flames, but a crash on Tuesday in Corvallis, Oregon, suggests that the electric
vehicles might pose a fire hazard not just to themselves but to the
surrounding environment.

In an incident spotted by The Drive, a speeding Model 3 hit a power pole,
shearing the pole at its base and hurling bits of the car far from the crash site, the Corvallis Police Department said in a statement on Facebook. The Model 3 was obliterated, and its battery pack was destroyed, flinging
burning-hot battery cells around the neighborhood.

Battery cells broke through two windows of two homes — one landed on a
person's lap, while the other landed on a bed and caught the sheets on fire, the police said.

"A tire was ripped from the car during the collision and struck the second
story siding of a nearby apartment complex with such force that it ruptured the water pipes within the wall, destroying the bathroom to the apartment
and flooding the downstairs portion of the apartment as well," the police
said.

The police said the driver was going over 100 mph when he lost control of
the vehicle, plowing into the power pole, two trees, and a telephone
junction box. The driver fled on foot but was found nearby and transported
to the hospital with minor injuries. The police charged him with a DUI, hit and run, criminal mischief, reckless driving, and reckless endangering.

The police said authorities tried to collect as many of the battery cells as they could, spending roughly three hours investigating and cleaning up. But on Wednesday the department told residents to be on the lookout for "
potentially hazardous batteries" that could stay hot for up to 24 hours and emit toxic fumes and chemicals.

left behind. City of Corvallis Police Department
Batteries overheating is always a problem when it comes to EVs, and it's
more likely to occur when the cells leave their protective pack and cooling system.

Studies have found that EVs are no more likely to catch fire than combustion-engine cars and that they might actually be statistically safer.

That the driver sustained only minor injuries may be a testament to the
Model 3's passenger safety, but an EV spewing burning batteries into the
environment and through windows may not be a good sign for those outside the car.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

靠,这也太猛了。电车确实是在安全性上有天然的优势。

how 'bout a Hummer

很多人还没有意识到,电车的结构安全性是一大卖点,相同的档次,比燃油车要耐撞得多。

Model 3 is great, with hundreds of toxic incinerating mini-bombs

Not likely to survive a 100mph crash towards a power pole.

如果是汽油车,司机肯定死翘翘了。这个特斯拉的司机还可以自己步行逃跑,太厉害了

是啊。车版讨论过这个问题,电车前面因为没有发动机和变速箱,前面空空荡荡,防撞结构可以做得异常粗壮。不光是特斯拉,天朝的电车也拿这个做为宣传点,但大多数人还没有意识过电车的这个优点。

Model 3以前有过好几次六七十迈出事故的例子,但100迈应该是第一次。如果是燃油家油车,生存机会很低,更不可能还步行逃跑。

是的,我看过本地新闻,有个警察,值勤时没注意撞到电线杆就挂掉了。如果是开特斯拉肯定还活得好好的。

K, 100迈的速度,竟然只有minor injuries.

it all depends on how it happened

if this Model 3 hit the pole dead center driver's side

he'll be a goner

also, 100 mph was only an estimated speed before t accident

it might already slowed down significantly on impact

这个是真牛逼,这么高速度放油车估计司机都爆成渣了

Model 3 真牛逼,
