    I'm living proof the Model S is the safest car ever made!

    Yesterday I was in a terrible car accident with my beloved Model S. I was hit by a driver who was talking on her cell phone and blew a red light. I got slammed at full speed while passing through an intersection. I was luck enough to walk away with no broken bones while the person who hit me left in an ambulance. I can tell you with absolute certainty, my model S protected me where other cars would have failed. This recent story of the car being unsafe due to a battery fire is ridiculous. My car did not so much as smoke, and not a drop of liquid was released. This is the safest car on the road hands down, and for me, I can say honestly say it saved my life. Thank you Elon..

    Wow. Glad you are ok and that they hit the front part of the car instead of the driver's door. Very scary.

    I hope you are ok! Thank you very much for sharing your story and the pictures! It seems to me that the frunk worked as an extra-large crumple zone and absorbed a lot of energy to the benefit of the driver. You dont get that with an ICE.

    Happy that you are ok. Scary thing to crash. Done it twice both times in BMWs and been unharmed. Great to see how good the model s is in a crash. Hope the other driver os ok also.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Thanks for posting (with pictures!).
    Glad you're ok.
    Please let us know (For Sale sub-section) if you have a salvage opportunity (like GasDoc did) because there has been a lot of interest in such things on TMC.
    Now that that's out of the way...

    What's next for you? Has your insurance or Tesla commented on whether the car can be repaired or have they talked about replacements? I'm very curious. Thanks.
