Per Tesla Owners Oregon, the crash happened on Monday, May 10, 2021, on Highway 217. At around 10:30 AM, a driver crashed through a barrier on 217 at I5 before launching into the air and flipping into a ditch. Emergency responders and fire crews raced to the scene.
As the story goes, there were two people trapped inside the wrecked car. It was difficult to access since it ended up on a steep embankment with thick brush. However, the report says firefighters were fortunate to be able to remove the two passengers in less than an hour.
