A Tesla car caught fire on a highway in west Austria on Tuesday, October 17, after it collided into a concrete barrier. The vehicle was severely burnt but the driver suffered no major injuries.
According to the Landeck Fire Brigade, the accident happened just before the car entered a tunnel on the Arlberg-Schnellstrasse highway. Firefighters called to the scene donned heavy respiratory protection gear and cut the power supply from the electronic car’s batteries before putting out the flames, which had started in the engine compartment.
