Work Truck Hits A Tesla Model 3 & Flees — Caught On Camera

Some type of work truck smashed into Twitter user Reed’s brand new Tesla Model 3 Performance and left the scene in a typical hit and run fashion. Sentry Mode caught the whole thing on camera, and there is even a website URL on the vehicle that hit the Tesla.

Just FYI: it’s not smart to ram your vehicle into another one, especially if you have any logo or branding on it, and then drive off. If you commit such a felony against a Tesla, there’s a high chance you’ll be caught on camera, especially with a branded vehicle!

Reed provides a video that clearly shows the work truck backing in quickly, smashing into the Tesla, and then driving away.

Many members of the Tesla community commented on Reed’s post and have given us clues to the identity of this vehicle. An up-close shot of the bumper of the work truck shows several letters that can probably be used to identify a local business.

Also, Steve Hamel pointed out that someone should be able to identify the associated company from other clues on the truck. It won’t be long before the business that owns this work truck is identified. Those initials on the door are most likely a logo for the business website and business cards as well as other promotional materials.

Hopefully the business owner will step up and do the right thing:

  • Cover all of Reed’s damages.
  • Fire the person who hit the truck.
  • Press charges against the person who hit Reed’s Tesla.

Accidents happen and can be frustrating, but you have a choice of doing the right thing or not. Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking. This person who hit Reed’s car definitely is lacking in that department.  The beauty of Sentry Mode is that it records everything around a Tesla. What is hard for me to understand is that people seem to not know this yet.

Hopefully Reed’s Model 3 will be repaired and these damages will be covered by some type of insurance from the other party.

The lesson to learn here is one we’ve seen before: Don’t hit a car and leave. It just makes things worse for you. And cameras are everywhere.
