Regarding the tire posts, the CHP has been performing a through investigation of the accident and tire issues have not been mentioned, so far.
It is true however, that Performance Teslas come with summer tires, could be Michelins, Contis or Bridgestones I believe.
This crash appears to be no accident.
The Tesla Model Y saved 4 lives that day. Incredible structure and engineering.
“We were very shocked” to discover that people in the car had survived the crash, said Brian Pottenger
, battalion chief with Cal Fire’s Coastside Fire Protection District.
“Accidents on that cliff are not rare. We do respond to a lot of vehicles on that cliff,” he told CNN. “What’s rare is that we do not get a lot of survivors – surviving this type of accident is very rare.”
Pottenger said the car contained an adult male, an adult female, a 9-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl. The children were both secured in car seats, which remained intact and in place, he said.
Crews freed the two children and used a rope to lift them up the cliff in baskets. Later a California Highway Patrol helicopter hoisted the two adults to safety.
