No official comments from Tesla

Another video has turned up to claims to show a Tesla Model S that caught fire after an accident. If the video is real, this would be the second Tesla Model S vehicle to catch fire in recent months.

The latest Model S electric vehicle reportedly crashed in Mexico. The accident happened in the city of Mérida. The accident reportedly occurred when the Model S entered a roundabout at high-speed, struck a wall, and crashed into another wall near a private residence before hitting a tree.

The video shows the car in flames and the driver was reportedly under the influence of alcohol and fled the scene. Tesla is made no official comments on this accident at this time.
