Ohio: Tesla crashes into a building

Dramatic footage has been released from the CCTV camera, which shows a Tesla car crashing through the glass wall of the convention center.

The video shows the maximum force with which a Tesla Model 3 hits a building.

He crashes through the glass and ends up pointing back inward.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that Tesla was traveling at about 70 miles per hour when it crashed into the Grand Columbus Convention Center.

The driver then told the police that the accident occurred when Tesla lost the ability to brake and could not stop.

In an incredible stroke of luck, no one was killed or seriously injured by the car, which veered through a red light as pedestrians, cars, and buses traveled through a nearby main street at lunchtime on a workday.

The video shows the brute force with which the car collided with the building.

However, footage of the accident shows how close the accident came to far worse outcomes.

If the vehicle had not hit a steel support pillar inside the convention center after it had pierced a glass wall, it would have continued through the interior of the facility.

At that time the center was hosting many events, including the junior volleyball championship.

It was not clear from police reports whether “autopilot” – a self-driving feature on Tesla – played any role in the crash.

Video of the incident was obtained from the Greater Columbus Convention Authority through an Ohio Public Records Act request.

Earlier this year, tens of thousands of self-driving Tesla cars were recalled due to a defect that allowed them to travel through stop lights.

The American company announced that it will recall 53,822 American cars equipped with the company’s fully self-driving program (Beta).

There have been concerns with some models displaying “rolling stops”, rather than coming to a complete stop at some intersections, posing a safety hazard.

Tesla made a mistake by making it difficult to hit the kids in the center

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said the recall covers some 2016-2022 Model S and Model X, 2017-2022 Model 3 and 2020-2022 Model Y vehicles.

NHTSA said the feature could allow vehicles to travel through a stop intersection — a US four-way station is a traffic management system that requires vehicles to stop on all roads leading to a road intersection — without stopping first.

NHTSA said Tesla will perform an over-the-air software update that disables the “rolling stop” function.

Tesla was not aware of any accidents, injuries or deaths related to the recalled vehicle issues, according to a highway official.
