When a Tesla Model S caught fireafter crashing into some road debris in Washington State earlier this month, company officials stressed that it was the first and only known Model S fire on a public road. But after a crash in Mexico, we can add one more to that list.P
The crash occurred in the Yucatán city of Mérida. In news first broken in the English-speaking world by Axis of Oversteer this weekend, Mexican newspaper Progreso Hoy reported on Oct. 18 that the Tesla sped into a roundabout, struck a wall and then crashed into another wall in a private residence before hitting a tree. The driver, whom Diario de Yucatán also reports was under the influence of alcohol, fled the scene.
