Spectacular Tesla Model S crash after flying 82+ft in the air shows importance of a large crumple zone [Gallery]

Tesla Model S crash

Earlier this week, a 18-year old took her father’s Tesla Model S for a ride with 4 of her friends in Pullach, Germany. She was reportedly driving at an excessive speed and lost control in a turn. The vehicle jumped off-road “and flew 25 meters [82 ft] through the air” then subsequently crashed in a field at full speed before rolling over at least once.
