It’s not everyday you are driving your Tesla Model S down the road only for it to randomly burst into flames, but that is what actress Mary McCormack says happened to her husband’s car while driving down a road in Los Angeles. McCormack posted a video in Twitter showing the grey Model S on fire, along with a description of the event.
According to McCormack, she and her husband, Michael Morris, were driving on Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood when they say a coupled flagged them down.
Morris quickly pulled over and he and McCormack realized their car was on fire. When they got out of the car, they called authorities, after which McCormack recorded the incident. She went on to thank the couple who got their attention.
Los Angeles deputies showed up to the scene before requesting help from firefighters to quell the fires emanating from the Model S. Nobody was hurt, but it’s still unnerving for this to happen ”out of the blue,” as McCormack claims.
In light of the event, Tesla responded to the accident stating it was “an extraordinarily unusual occurrence” and said it investigating the cause of the flames.
As is the case with cars, it’s not out of the realm of possibility of one specific vehicle to suffer an accident like this. But given the bright spotlight Tesla has been under recently, this latest event is getting a lot of scrutiny that will undoubtedly continue moving forward.
