While we spend all our time reviewing what is new and exciting in the world of plug-in cars, we also come across a good bulk of random plug-in news items that really don't have a proper place on the site; but sometimes (especially when it comes to crashed EVs - a guilty pleasure of ours) we host them anyway.

Today, we offer up a picture of a 2013 Tesla Model S (85 kW) that appears to have taken some serious side impact damage, and is now awaiting repairs in Dallas, Texas.

WreckExotics (who found the car) notes that "...the crumple zone looks like it did a great job absorbing the impact."

...it appears as though nothing is going right for Tesla in Texas these days.
