A crash in Tampa on Thursday night is being investigated and has resulted in “a Tesla going up in flames”, according to an ABC Action News Tampa Bay report.
Video from the scene shows the front of the car engulfed in flames as the Tesla sits on the side of the road where fire officials work on controlling the blaze.
The ABC anchor says: “Three people were inside of the Tesla when it caught on fire, they were taken to the hospital. Eyewitnesses telling us that other drivers stopped and pulled those folks to safety before first responders got on the scene.”
As the article notes, officials did not specify the cause of the crash or driver’s condition, but said all injuries suffered are expected to be non-life threatening.
