The Los Angeles Police Department is offering a reward for information about the driver of a rented Tesla who crashed into two parked cars in Echo Park early Sunday morning in a dangerous stunt.
The 2018 Tesla S-BLM was momentarily airborne at the intersection of Baxter and Alvarado streets before crashing into two vehicles and several trash cans, the LAPD said. A video shared by the LAPD’s Central Division shows the Tesla hurtling down Baxter – one of the steepest streets in Los Angeles -, blowing up and then slamming onto its front wheels in the moments before the crash.
The driver exited the Tesla and fled, police said. Investigators plan to contact the person who rented the Tesla to determine if he or she was the driver.
The LAPD is offering $1,000 to anyone who can provide information leading to the driver’s identification. Those who have hit-and-run tips are urged to contact Det. Juan Campos at (213) 833-3713 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anonymous tips can also be submitted at lacrimestoppers.org.
