An attempted car jacking in Jacksonville, Florida was captured by Draper Younce, a Navy Sailor’s Tesla.
Yonce explained the terrifying encounter “he immediately said, ‘Get out of the car, get out of the car, I am taking your car’ … I saw my opportunity to escape, and I ducked to the right. I accelerated as hard as I could.”
The Tesla model 3 Yonce drives is equipped with eight cameras and after driving away he saved the video and turned it into police.
Draper Younce wrote on Twitter “Here is my interview. So thankful to be alive. Thank you @elonmusk your car was a huge part in saving my life. Gotta make all cars bullet proof or gotta get me a #cybertruck.”
Elon Musk himself replied “Wow!”
