Holy shit - the driver and his two kids escaped the car with what were effectively minor injuries!
That is a very safe car.

Impact safety maybe, but i am not so sure i would call an exploding fireball like that a very safe car !
And “Driver Assist” involved again ?

Yep. Even if teslas caught on fire every bit as often as gas cars (which they don't) - having them start burning sometime _after_ the crash is infinitely preferable for the safety of the passengers.

Um yeah Telsas are just like any other car.
This seems to be making the rounds on Twitter today... It's an entire truck car carrier of Tesla M3s that burned together.
They are taking the burned shells and transporting them to another carrier truck.

Looks like they're not - they're a lot less likely to catch on fire, at least going by news reports.
