WATCH: Tesla car explodes after a crash on Russian road
A little bit worrying.
A Tesla vehicle burst into flames after crashing into a parked tow truck in Russian on Saturday night.
The Model 3 version of the electric car was travelling at around 100km per hour at the time of the incident, according to the driver. Reuters has reported that the driver told local media that he had been using drive assistance mode, but had his hands on the steering wheel.
Three people were injured in the crash, but nobody was killed.
A video of the burning vehicle surfaced on Instagram, which shows the entire car engulfed in flames, as well as a small explosion.
