Stunning security video has emerged of what appears to be a Tesla Model 3 flying into a parking lot at what appears to be at least 50 or 60 miles per hour and crashing into several parked cars, before what appears to be flipping over in mid-air.
The video surfaced on Weibo and shows about 15 seconds of security footage where a vehicle flies through a lowered parking lot gate at a breathtaking rate of speed before wrecking violently.
"The car lost control, suddenly accelerated, failed to brake, and crashed," a translated version of the Weibo post says.
It goes on to say the driver - who had 10 years experience in driving - was rescued for 7 hours after the crash and had to receive a blood transfusion as a result of their injuries.
"Autopilot was not turned on and the brakes were stepped on," a translated version of the post claims.
The poster on the Weibo board also wrote (translated):
"I said before there will definitely be similar things in the future. Because now the sales volume is up, the base will be bigger! There are exactly the same accidents abroad!"
