The social media post by the towing company says the Tesla Model Y ended up leaving the road and colliding with a tree after jumping around 20 feet in the air. It also reportedly travelled at least 85 feet through the air before landing on the swampy muddy area 150 feet down the parking lot.

Despite such a severe crash, the minor injury to the driver points out the robust safety of the electric car. Tesla cars have been one of the key features the automaker always points out. This incident testifies that.
