Back when I was in Germany years ago there were plenty of sections of the Autobahn that had only grass / land between the two different directions.
Going back deeper into my memory, when living there I saw news reports and pictures of people on the Autobahn crashing at high speeds with injuries but no death , other crashes where there was death.
And the person I talk about who was talking to me a few months after getting into a crash, his crash where it was divided , but near the entrance of a tunnel he hit another vehicle but going fast enough to then proceed to crash right into the side of the tunnel at the entrance , thereby crashing right into Rock . Head on into a Rock Hillside .
The point is , Crashes in other cars at higher speeds and no death, but Tesla car crash at low speed and death.
When looking at the many news reports of the Tesla crash I questioned if the damage to the top front of the half of it was from the crash or from the Fire Department cutting it open to get out the driver.
In the news reports other people stopped immediately and pulled the driver out of the car long before the Fire Department got there.
So that answers one question, but leaves another, Did the Fire Department cut open the car in order to get to the batteries ? Which would make the crash look worse than, and make the crash look like it took place at a higher speed than what is the usual low speed in that area at that time of day ??
In any case , in such a low speed ( low speed for a highway ) crash the driver should not have died immediately upon impact. Although just a few weeks earlier I saw on the news the aftermath of a deadly crash involving one of those Very small Italian cars ( Fiat ) and a small tree. it only crumpled a very small part of the front right side of that little Fiat, but the driver died upon impact . Taking everything into account I am still surprised the Tesla driver died immediately .
