Man arrested after Tesla crashes, sends batteries flying

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Police say an Oregon man crashed a Tesla while going about 100 mph, destroying the vehicle, a power pole and starting a fire when some of the hundreds of batteries from the vehicle broke windows and landed in residences. Corvallis Police Lt. Ryan Eaton says Dylan Milota was driving a 2019 Tesla S Tuesday night when he lost control, left the road and hit a power pole. Police say Milota suffered minor injuries and is facing multiple misdemeanor charges. It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer. Police were urging residents to remain alert for other potentially hazardous small batteries from the vehicle that could be in the area.
