California Tesla crash leaves three family members dead

A recent Tesla crash with a Toyota car in Southern California left three members of the same family dead and two others badly injured, California Highway Patrol (CHP) has confirmed.

A 2013 silver Tesla collided with a 2004 Toyota Corolla on the Antelope Valley Freeway in Palmdale last Friday night. The crash took place at around 10:30 p. m. When the CHP officers arrived on the spot, the Toyota was on fire.

CHP Officer Jordan Richards said several bystanders came to their assistance to remove the survivors from the burning car.

The three people who died on the spot were in the Toyota car. They were reportedly from the same family. One of the two severely injured people is an adult and a child. They were freed from the damaged car and rushed to nearby hospitals.

Tyree Lavon Nash, 31, was rushed to Antelope Valley Hospital; while 6-year-old boy was transported to Children's Hospital L. A. in critical condition.

Eddie Pickett, of Los Angeles County Fire Department, confirmed that the vehicle caught fire as a consequence of the collision, and the three victims died at the scene.

The driver of the electric car Tesla, a 58-year-old resident of Newhall, suffered only minor injuries. He was not immediately arrested by police. It is still unknown if he was cited.
