Stolen Tesla Car-B-Que in So Cal

I know! It's hardly news any more! But, down in southern California, some enterprising soul decided that, perhaps, an Obamaphone, Obamacare and unemployment were not nearly enough, and the world owed this fellow an electric car!

Fiery crash involving stolen Tesla shuts down La Brea Avenue

This stolen car was being pursued by the police when it hit a light pole, split in two, whereupon half the carcaught fire and the other half impacted a building and wedged itself between two walls.

I don't know about you, but when I read the words "fiery crash" and "split in two" describing an automobile accident, my Spidey sense starts to tingle! Now I realize that there were extenuating circumstances here, namely a high speed chase in a stolen car. Still, it's not hard to imagine someone driving on the freeway at a goodly percentage of that speed, maybe blowing a tire, slicing, dicing and sautéing their shiny new Tesla around a stationary object, or shredding itself on the nearest sixteen wheeler.

We have noted the propensity of electric cars to catch fire herehere, and here. That doesn't even count the retrofits, like Neil Young's famous car-B-que.

Caveat emptor.
