According to the official release from the Los Angeles Police Department, the incident occurred at 12:10 a.m. on the night of March 20. The police say that the “rental driver of a black 2018 Tesla S-BLM decided to perform a dangerous stunt at Baxter Street and Alvarado Street, where he collided with several trash cans and two parked vehicles.” Luckily, no one were in the cars that were hit and no one was reported to be injured.
At this time, the police say the driver of the Tesla — which was abandoned at the scene of the crime — has not been identified and there is no description of them.
Now that all of the boring useful information is out of the way, let’s get to the fun part: the internet’s reaction. As is the case with all supremely viral videos, the Yeeted Telsa has inspired some glorious memes, with one person even comparing the footage to the highway car chase scene in The Batman.
