On the side lay a piece of battery, torn from the body of Tesla after the collision. Despite the fact that there was no visible fire, the firemen flooded it with foam, just in case. When the car was loaded onto the tow truck, its battery ignited, but the fire was quickly extinguished. Upon arrival at the parking lot, the battery burned again, and the electric car had to be put out for the third time.

This is not the first case of ignition of Tesla cars after an accident. Earlier this year, the Model X crossover suddenly caught fire five days after the accident in Mountain View, California. And most recently Tesla Model S American director Michael Morris suddenly flashed during the movement.
