Once again, we see proof of just how safe Teslas truly are.

Yes, the Tesla Model X is destroyed. Yes, a fire broke out after impact. But the driver of the vehicle (the only occupant) sustained only non-life threatening injuries.

The crash occurred this morning on Paseo Padre Parkway. As a result, the roadway was shut down while police, EMS and fire were on the scene.

Details are very limited at this time, but we do know the driver was a Tesla employee and fatigue is being looked at as a possible factor for the crash. Most importantly, no serious injuries were reported.

The Fremont Police Department first reported on the incident via Twitter. See embedded tweet below:

Tesla Model X Safety Unmatched

It's impossible to guess at speed in this instance, but like as we witnessed in that 128 MPH Tesla Model S crash, the vehicle somehow managed to protect those within.

It's remarkable really. Perhaps that's why Tesla makes it so well known that safety is paramount and that the Model X is actually the safest vehicle sold in the U.S. today.

Tesla Issues Statement

“We have been in touch with local authorities to learn the facts of the incident and offer our full cooperation. The damage sustained by the vehicle is indicative of a high-speed collision, which can result in a fire in any type of car, not just electric vehicles.”

“We are glad is safe."
