MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – A Tesla that police say was going nearly 130 miles per hour plowed into a black Infiniti SUV on the MacArthur Causeway.
Three people were left with traumatic injuries.
CBS4’s Peter D’Oench received a video of the October 21st, 2018 crash from Miami Beach police.
On it you can see the driver of the SUV attempting to make a U-turn on a green light when it is T-boned by the Tesla, nearly cutting it in half. The force of the impact caused the SUV to flip on its roof.
“It’s a shocking video of the crash that resulted after a Tesla traveling at top speed, 128 miles per hour, along the McArthur Causeway,” said Officer Ernesto Rodriguez. “At the moment of impact, after he pressed his brakes, it was a 93 mile per hour impact.”
