Video shows the moment an out-of-control Tesla driver crashed into the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, on May 4 at about 12:30 p.m.
Authorities say the Tesla Model 3 exited the highway and ran a red light at an estimated 70 mph before jumping a curb, down some steps, and smashing through the glass of the convention center. Though several events were taking place that day, no one was seriously injured or killed.
The convention center estimates the crash caused at least $250,000 in damages.
The driver, 63-year-old Frantz Jules, told police that the vehicle’s brakes failed. Jules has been charged with failure to control.
