YouTuber Carl Medlock bought a completely totaled Tesla Roadster that is said to have hit a telephone pole at 75mph. The impressive thing is that all of its passengers survived.

This becomes even more impressive as Medlock takes on a tour of the car. How something that was destroyed could save the lives of its passengers is truly a wonder.

Medlock also speculates that the car must have flipped and possibly "cartwheeled down the freeway," because he discovered pieces of asphalt in the car's frame. He also indicates in his video that the transmission, the battery pack, the AC components, and other crucial parts remain surprisingly undamaged.

Tesla is known for the safety of its vehicles. Its Model 3 vehicle has been given perfect 5 star safety rating by both the Australasian New Car Assessment Program and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It has also earned the highest achievement awarded by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
